Format: Paperback
Anthony Heilbut is an expert on the subject of gospel music, one of the most important musical forces in American history. His book is written from the perspective of a scholar, but one with a real passion for the music. There are passages in his book that almost as thrilling as the music itself.

11 of 12 people found the following review helpful By J. M. Olivarez on October 8, 2004
Format: Paperback
To the reader who stated that Heilbut gets "emotionally" carried away, or that his "fanatical religious beliefs" make him bias:

NEWS FLASH: last I heard, Heilbut is an atheist.

So how can he be religiously biased toward gospel music if he doesn't believe in the God they sing about? I'll tell you: because he is a music lover-he likes the sound, not the message.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By George Kovats on April 25, 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Whether you love the music or know nothing about it, this is the best book ever written about the early road warriors who travelled the gospel highway. Mr. Heilbut infuses his deep knowledge of gospel singers with passion and love. That's what gives the book its unique flavor and ranks it far above any other work on the subject, scholastic or otherwise. A reviewer dismisses him as nothing more than a "fan", as if that's a bad thing. Let the "scholars" wallow in their dates and facts. This book is juicy and vibrant, as full of fire and life as the artists he depicts so well.
