Sorry, this Product is no longer available.

Reverend Charlie Jackson’s God’s Got It! is now available on 180-gram vinyl, newly remastered via insanely expensive analog-to-analog equipment. Even if you’ve already got the CD version of this not-so-long-ago obscure record, you’ve got to get the vinyl! This album is pure grass-roots gospel music with feeling bursting from each groove. You talk about soul! It doesn’t get any rawer than this. Even if church music isn’t your bag, you can’t deny the emotion of this record.

"All it takes is the volatile growl of his singing, the terse twang of his Fender guitar and a lone congregation member clapping and singing responses for the Rev. Charlie Jackson to rock the heavens on God’s Got It. The songs (here) were collector’s-item singles that the White Stripes must wish they owned." - The New York Times

"In the 1970s, this Mississippi-born man of God made a series of holy-blues singles for the tiny Booker and Jackson labels. This set has ‘em all: heated sermons of need, devotion and joy, blessed by Jackson’s thunder-and-Lightnin’ Hopkins voice and crusty-tremelo, railroad-boogie riffing. ‘If you need it, God’s got it,’ goes the opening hymn. But the reverend rocks it." - Rolling Stone
