Gospel (Reference)

Technically, this includes CCM (Contemporary Christian Music), not that I have any inclination to listen to any. Artists who made their mark elsewhere tend to be listed there, which includes almost all country s ngers who have dabbled in gospel (even Doyle Lawson and the Loroth Brothers, who more than dabbled), as well as Sam Cooke, Wynrr, Al r, Al Green, Philip Bailey, and others.

The reference list includes records that have been obtained and/or rated (in blue) as well as many other records that have been recommended from various sources.
