5.0 out of 5 stars A Bountiful Gospel Meal, November 24, 2002

This review is from: Good News: 100 Gospel Greats (Audio CD)
There are many collections of black gospel re-issues on CDs. Most typically, there are only one or two tracks of each singer or group, and too often, they are the best known tracks. That means that for any collection you buy, you already have most of the recordings. It also means that you have no sense of the breadth of material and styles of a singer or group. Having collected black gospel for many years and having a large collection,there are very few of these 100 tracks that I already have. Even the well-known singers like Mahalia Jackson and the Soul Stirrers are repesented by mostly unfamiliar tracks. This is not a "greatest Hits" collection, and it has the best cross section of the full range of black gospel I've ever heard.
Whether you are looking for an introduction to black gospel, or are filling holes in a large collection, this is a fine collection.. the reproduction has been done caringly, and the booklet is a delight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reissue Heaven, August 21, 2002

This four CD treasure chest of gospel's golden age combines superb song selection, packaging and reproduction with Proper Records amazing bargain pricing. You can quibble about omissions-Marion Williams, The Caravans, only one brilliant flash of Sam Cooke..... (And if that would spur production and another such marvelous set, quibble away!)
I recently picked up Revenant's essential Raw Pre-War Gospel. Together, these collections offer a perfect foundation for any gospel library. Good News indeed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential music, June 23, 2008
This review is from: Good News: 100 Gospel Greats (Audio CD)
The other reviews posted here say it all. This collection is extraordinary. I bought it because it includes "I'm bound for Canaan Land" by Silas Steele and the Famous Blue Jays, which I had in vinyl and consider to be among the greatest vocal performances on record. The rest of the collection is superb, including rare recordings by R.H. Harris as the original vocalist for the Soul Stirrers and so much else. For $25 you can't find a better set of music--4 full-length CDs of glorious music.

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful collection of wonderful songs, March 20, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Good News: 100 Gospel Greats (Audio CD)
so many good songs and singers, and a great price, even the souned is superb, sometimes w these collections the production is not as important as the number of songs or artist, and im not one to much care anyway, i grew up w the old phonograph sound imbedded in me, but i must say, these disc have a very clean sound, but not to the point here it takes away from the original sound. i love proper compalations, i have the jimmie rodgers, carter family. they do all the greats from bob wills to pops, and the price is always nice. highly reccomend!!! worth the price for the charioteers alone.
