RSR002 - The Nelson Family - Filled With His Spirit (12" LP)

A joyful body of work from The Nelson Family of Washington DC. 1986. Gospel record with super production, featuring top tracks 'Thank You Lord', a favorite of DJs in the know including Floating Points & Skymark, plus 'Everlasting Love' and title track 'Filled With His Spirit'. 

RSR003 - ENERGIZE - Piece Of Class / Star Of The Disco (45)

Modern soul/disco record from Marin County band ‘ENERGIZE’ 1979. Review courtesy of Juno: Astonishingly, original copies of Energize's 1979 private press single "Piece of Class" have changed hands for over 500 quid online. Helpfully, Rain & Shine have decided to save us all a few bob by slinging out this licensed reissue. The title track is something of a bustling disco-funk gem - a genuinely wonderful fusion of hazy vocals, dueling horn solos, spacey synthesizer flourishes and driving bass guitar. B-side "Star of the Disco" is an even more up-tempo affair, with mazy saxophone solos, rasping horn stabs and starry jazz-funk keys riding a walking bassline and high-octane disco drums.

RSR004 - Announced soon!
