Here are 22 stirring gospel rockers recorded from 1949-62 by the flamboyant and powerful Narcisse. He was a native of New Orleans who sang, prophesied, prayed and was a mystery to his family. In 1943 he moved to California when a voice told him to "Go to California." Narcisse worked in San Francisco shipyards at Hunters Point before founding the Mount Zion Spiritual Temples Organization in Oakland in 1945. In keeping with his name he had a church "court" complete with princesses, bishops, princes and missionaries! He was a powerful vocalist and was usually accompanied by a small group (usually piano and organ with occasional guitar and percussion) plus occasional congregations. Features a vocal by congregation member and future R&B singer Theola Kilgore.
