Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.


As a label known for the Memphis Sound, Stax launched a gospel imprint meant to “bridge the gap between the street corner and the church pew.” They called it Gospel Truth, and for three years, it released gospel music that crackled with the intensity of their past successes. 

Truth Is Where It's At: The Best of Gospel Truth celebrates the diverse sounds cultivated by a short-lived label, unafraid to merge the era’s rock and soul with a spiritual movement and message. From the imprint’s star Bishop Rance Allen to the singular eponymous album of Blue Aquarius, this box set commemorates a short, but inspiring, part of Stax’s history.  This set includes the self-titled album by The Rance Allen Group, Jesus People by Maceo Woods and The Christian Tabernacle Concert Choir, A Tribute to Mahalia Jackson by Louise McCord, Whatever Happened to Love by Clarence Smith, the self-titled album from The Gospel Artistics and the self-titled album from Blue Aquarius.

Limited to 1,000 numbered copies, the box set includes 6LPs on 180g black vinyl, with AAA lacquers cut from the original tapes by Ryan Smith of Sterling Sound, and comes with a special 20-page Listening Notes booklet written by Jared “Jay B.” Boyd to tell the story of each album.
