New documentary by The Vinyl Factory & Luaka Bop

The Time For Peace Is Now is the brand new documentary presented by The Vinyl Factory together with our Label Services partner Luaka Bop. Produced to accompany Luaka Bop’s latest compilation The Time For Peace Is Now, which collects tracks from fourteen gospel groups, this documentary tells the stories of The Floyd Family, Willie Scott and the Birmingham Spirituals, and Annie Caldwell of The Staples Jr. Singers, in their own words. It draws light on the history behind the 1970s soul gospel in the United States giving a voice to these groups, bands and collectives that were widely missed by the mainstream. 

It is a documentary where the core values of soul gospel – respect, the love for one another and the belief in God – take center stage, highlighting the necessity of focusing on the commonality of humankind, in an era marked by growing disparity.
