2016 Reissue - Remastered

After more than three decades as a lost classic, the debut album by Washington DC soul/gospel outfit Enlightment is finally receiving a proper release. Founded by ordained bishop Larry H. Jordan and his brother-in-law Frank Tinsley in the early 1980s, Enlightment was among the first groups to fuse modern R&B production with gospel themes. Unfortunately, the independent release of their 1984 debut album “Faith Is The Key” was torpedoed when both their distributor and pressing plant went out of business. Only a handful of “Faith Is the Key” LPs ever made it into the public’s hands.

 As a result, the record became a holy grail for collectors. It was re-discovered around the year 2000, when copies started selling online for over $2000. While disappointed in the record’s lack of immediate impact, the group’s founders are not surprised by its recent revival. “It’s just good music with a spiritual message, that’s why it stood the test of time,” says Tinsley. “We made sure we had very crystal clear production,” adds Jordan. Thanks to an official vinyl re-release via Nature Sounds with worldwide distribution, listeners can now experience that innovation first-hand.
