Good God! Apocryphal Hymns is a left-of-center collection of gospel tunes in a variety of moods, from saintly to joyously insane. The Gospel Clouds of Oakland, California fall on the smoother side of the spectrum, minting this breezy original in 1967. The Gospel Clouds remained industrious through the ’60s and ’70s, integrating the Bay Area’s talent pool and sound palette with words of praise for several independent gospel releases. Amidst signing Pacific funk progenitors like Merle Saunders, Pleasure, and Side Effect, Fantasty Records made the Gospel Clouds an offer that the group ultimately declined: “If you change the word ‘Jesus’ to ‘Baby’,” recalls bandleader Leonard Lothlen, “we’ll give you $15,000 right now.”

“Let us Pray” by the Gospel Clouds from Good God! Apocryphal Hymns, available this summer on CD and 2LP.
