Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Leading gospel researcher Anthony Heilbut continues his splendid series of gospel reissues for Shanachie and its sister label, Spirit Feel, with this collection of 31 performances by 16 of gospel's greatest female vocalists, including some of America's finest singers in any genre. It begins with five of Mahalia Jackson's early recordings for Apollo, before she was tamed by Columbia, and continues with such legends as Willie Mae Ford Smith, Roberta Martin, Rosetta Tharpe, Clara Ward, Marion Williams, and Dorothy Love Coates as well as lesser known names. Heilbut's 16 pages of notes put it all in context. --Geoffrey Himes

Format: Audio CD
... this is the CD for you! Beautiful, beautiful material, with some of the most influential performances in the Gospel music canon selected. The liner notes alone are like a crash course in Gospel music history. You don't have to be a Christian to be moved by these songs of hope, struggle, and redemption. Though the second CD in this series (TGGW, Vol. II) edges out Vol. I as my favorite, Vol I has gotten me through some tough life-passages *and* enhanced my appreciation of a great American art form! The CD has been a mainstay in my stereo since I received it as a gift from a close friend of mine four years ago.... Whether you're a longtime Gospel fan or someone who has always wanted to explore the history of the musical form that gave birth to everything from Blues to Folk to Rock-n-Roll, you owe it to yourself to buy this CD!

Here is the best singers from the best period of American music by the unrivaled maven of black Gospel's soul. This is connoisseur quality and serious seekers/collectors will rejoice in the rare tracks (all are killers!). And the liner notes alone are worth the price of admission. the beginners and half-steppers, you may find this too deep but I promise you, if ANY one of these sisters sang on "America Idol"? ...Simon Cowel would have a heart attack dead right in his chair!

If you don't have a soul, this will give you one.
