The rawest DIY gospel ever resurrected. The West Side of Chicago was just an annex of the deep rural South for Gene Autry Cash and his flock of recent Old Dominion transplants looking to cut their fiery, unadorned sounds indelibly to plastic. His Jade label absorbed those God-fearing artists: family bands with wailing kids and barely amateur groups sourced from local parishes, infused with reverberations of country and western and deep soul. Glinting authenticity shines from every track like a diamond in the unpolished rough—each group completely convinced that salvation comes through song.

Numerophon is The Numero Group’s vinyl-only legacy imprint. Aimed at releases featuring plaintive and old-timey folk and gospel, blues, ethnic, field recordings, the musical outpourings of Appalachia, and so on, Numerophon is a label's evolution run backward, into what Numero might have looked like circa 1948.
