David Byrne's Luaka Bop label is releasing a compilation of "secular gospel" from the 1970s, with liner notes by Jonathan Lethem

Having read lots of SF and most of Lethem’s work, I find this characterization puzzling

Former science fiction writer Jonathan Lethem, then? Genre apostate Jonathan Lethem?

Secular gospel immediately made me think of The Staple Singers. But “Respect Yourself” and “I’ll Take You There” aren’t rarities.
