5.0 out of 5 stars Now, this is "some REAL singing!" May 29, 2007
By Oren
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the finest Mahalia compilations to date. Included in this two-disc set are two selections ("God's Gonna Separate the Wheat from the Tares" and "Oh, My Lord") from Mahalia's VERY FIRST recording session in 1937. It also includes a complete listing of the composers and recording dates for each of the each of the 50 selections in this set. Mahalia always sang with such strong conviction and you, the "listener" will be lifted through her renditions. Purchase and enjoy!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent Mahalia January 8, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I just wanted to add a bit more on the recording dates here. Mahalia fans will be delighted to know that all selections date from 1937 to 1954, with many cuts from the '40s. With 50 tracks to savor, this set thus represents an invaluable compendium of Mahalia's early days, before she gained a wider audience through her long association with Columbia Records, launched in late '54. Even if you have later versions of various songs, you'll want to explore the comparisons this set allows. The mono sound is generally as clear and clean and commanding as Mahalia's voice itself. Rejoice greatly!

Just a awsome album. One that you can listen to for hours. Everything that needs to be said about Mahalia has been said, but now she is entertaining a younger set of fans.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When I had a daughter in grade school and three boys in diapers, I'd put the 33 1/3 records of hers on the machine and mop, vacuum, then then sit on the floor and fold all the cloth diapers and baby and toddler clothes, and sing along with Mahalia.
45 years later I'm still listening to her while working on the computer, washing the dishes or vacuuming...
but now I'm interspersing Rodriguez's two CDs and the DVD of "Searching for Sugarman" in between.
Both of them get right away to the heart of our problems, to what our duties are, and why we are here- to love God, Love eachother, help the children grow straight and strong, develop a better and better civilization, so we can all make this a loving world of freedom and unity.
And so all of us make it back to God together! Because in the Teachings of Baha'u'llah, we can't make it alone! This time in the world's history we either destroy ourselves or save ourselves as a world unit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest gospel singer EVER. March 9, 2013
By G3G3G3
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I grew up listening to Mahalia records in our home played a LOT - but particularly on Sunday mornings as we were getting ready for church. Even as a young child, I sensed the righteous talent and soul that Mahalia possessed and portrayed in her music.
Hearing my Momma hum or sing along with the songs made them even more entrenched on my heart that ALL Christians who have a heart to sing, made me know that we'll all get to hear Mahalia sing these praises to God in Heaven for an
E-T-E-R-T-I-N-Y!!!!! Just imagine the glory to God at his Throne with angelic choirs singing along with Mahalia!
And hearing Mildred Falls play Heaven's grandest piano to accompany her will truly be divine, too.
I just have to ask.......can some of us other musicians also join occasionally in the praise band? I'd sure like to be able to be asked to play bass in a rhythm section behind her for some of her soulful arrangements. It would sure make my Momma proud - and it would satisfy my soul to play and sing praises to the King with this, the greatest gospel singer, Mahalia Jackson.

Fairly comprehensive cd of Mahalia Jackson's music, especially for a beginner to either gospel music or to her personally.
My favorite is Caanan Land. A++++
