Editorial Reviews

Her breathtaking interpretations of traditional songs made Mahalia the greatest gospel singer of all. Her recordings are wonders, and here are 36 of the finest from across her career: Walk On by Faith; Precious Lord; I Found the Answer; In the Upper Room; Calvary (live); Dig a Little Deeper; Walk in Jerusalem , and more, plus vintage photos and detailed notes. As uplifting as music gets!

Customer Reviews

I'm only giving 4-stars to THE ESSENTIAL MAHALIA JACKSON because of the song section on this two CD set.

Most of the songs are slower-tempo gospel songs and, although they show off Jackson's immense vocal prowess, they just didn't really move me like another Mahalia Jackson CD that I own (The World's Greatest Gospel Singer).

Even though a lot of the tracks are performed live they don't capture the excitement of a live performance and Jackson sounds like she's holding back some on many of these songs.

On the plus side you do get some live performances and Jackson sounds really good and even hits some really high notes every now and then. And as far as the poor audio quality on "I've Been Buked," I believe this is the live performance that Mahalia did at the "march on Washington" where Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his famous "I Have A Dream..." speech.

Anyway, it's not a bad CD but for my taste I like the rocking gospel songs that make me want to move and tap my feet.

The quality of sound on this CD is excellent. My favorite disc is #2 because of several toe tapping songs back to back. The placement of the songs in a certain sequence makes a CD very enjoyable. Of interest, the date of the recording is given & we are told if the song is a single & on what other albums it can be found if applicable. I wish the lyrics were printed out. I was very glad that I purchased this particular CD. I love all of Ms. Jackson's music. I am very fortunate to be able to obtain a new Cd 38 years after her death at the age of 60.

There's so many good words to describe Mahalia Jackson. Very spiritual-minded, very devoted to God, a REAL Christian and the greatest gospel singer EVER. Her heavenly deep voice is so emotionally moving, especially on the song "Trouble of the World". I first heard this song in the movie "Imitation of Life" starring Lana Turner. Ms. Jackson has a cameo in the end of the movie singing this song at a funeral. The song is so beautiful and emotional that it makes me cry every time I hear it. There's not one bad song on this masterpiece at all. May Mahalia Jackson rest in peace.

This has many of Ms. Jackson's renditions of classic gospel songs and hymns, including "Trouble in the World", the song I was looking for. I purchased this as a gift. The combination of Ms. Jackson and Ms. Falls on piano is something that should not be missed or forgotten.

I do not know why I like Mahalia Jackson? Her Voice has the anointing of the Lord as always I have felt.
I often listen to her and feel the joy of listening Christian music.
I think she is Queen of Christian Hymns!
This album contain few of her best songs...
She have contributed a great deal for Christian music heritage.
If you are serious about Christian music this album can not be ignored!

I love Mahalia's unique style singing these wonderful gospel songs. You can feel her deep conviction and honesty as she sings from her soul. Her annointed singing helps me draw closer to the Lord.

I have loved Mahalia's Christmas album since childhood. I was looking for more. This album is more upbeat and not as easy to listen to. Still I will always love the way Mahalia sings. True soul music.
