Rare funky gospel album released on Stax offshoot label, The Gospel Truth. Includes the moody ‘Foxfire’.

As an aside from both the traditional and more cutting-edge gospel styles in the Gospel Truth catalog, 1973’s “Blue Aquarius” is a stark departure in sound and subject matter. While the album may be classified under the “religious music” banner, the album foregoes any notion of “gospel,” aiming instead for followers of a new age spiritual sect known as the Divine Light Movement.

Founded in northern India in 1960 by Hans Rām Singh Rawat, the organization was led in 1973 by his 15-year-old son, Prem Pal Singh Rawat, known to a purported base of more than one million global devotees as Guru Maharaj Ji. Much like Stax had done with its Los Angeles Coliseum concert in August 1972, the DLM staged a large-scale festival in the Astrodome in Houston, Texas. Centered on growing its U.S. membership, the three-day event featured speeches by the Guru, a performance by Enterprise Records avant-garde bluesman Eric Mercury and 50-piece band Blue Aquarius, who’d already pressed this LP of odes to their leader.
