In a time when the gospel world was reckoning with the 1972 passing of gospel titan Mahalia Jackson, Detroit singer Louise McCord leaned into her legacy. Accompanied by the Rance Allen Brothers in engineer Richard Becker’s Pac-Three Studios, McCord, in actuality, broke away from the conventions of Jackson’s more traditional gospel. She opts instead to charge forth toward a deeper, funkier path, most glaring on the album’s single “Better Get a Move On,” written by Stax staff writer Bettye Crutcher.

Steve Allen’s bass makes the heartbeat of the song’s groove, Rance’s guitar licks adorn it with flair and McCord’s mezzo-soprano reaches an atmosphere adjacent to rock and roll singers of the day. Though it’s at home in this collection, the song’s potential to move both souls and bodies is realized even further during McCord’s performance at the 1972 concert at the Los Angeles Coliseum that would become Stax’s “Wattstax” documentary. And McCord’s liveliness in both the studio and on that particular stage, awakens the song’s essence, reinforcing the song’s message of immediacy in the face of mortality.
