Producer/remixer King Britt, the former DJ for Digable Planets, put out a CD in 2005 called “King Britt Presents: Sister Gertrude Morgan.”
What he did was, he took an obscure 1970 a cappella LP by an eccentric New Orleans gospel singer and folk artist – that would be Sister Gertrude – and he constructed a psychedelic hip-hop soundscape around her vocals. (Similar to what Moby did on his “Play” project.)
The result is pretty doggone cool. Click here to hear “Let’s Make a Record” streaming on my Vox blog.
