Shirley Caesar – Nobody By Jesus

Nobody but Jesus can inspire a dope drum break like this. Shirely Caesar was a gospel/soul/r&b artist on United Artists records. Despite her sexual pose and big afro on the album cover, this LP is pretty much a snoozer. Most of the tracks are traditional soul-like gospel music. The track “Nobody but Jesus” has a long drum break in the intro, ripe for the sampling. Check it out.

There is also a cover of a Stevie Wonder cut “Jesus Children of America” but it has the same sound as the rest of the album.
