Format: Audio CD
If you like Ray Charles, B.B. King, Aretha Franklin, Whitney Houston, the Soul of Motown or Stax-Volt, or any great Black R&B or Soul singer that you care to name - then you will love this music. These are the roots, the soil it came from, the training ground for pop stars from Sam Cooke and Wilson Pickett through Whitney Houston and Lou Rawls, and the arena in which many of them made better, more powerful music than they ever did on the pop stage - Black Gospel music from the 30's through the 60's.

Even to an agnostic like me, this is holy stuff, sacred ground, as important and immortal as any musical art that America has produced - it belongs on the same shelf with Louis Armstrong in the 20's, Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie in the late 40's, the Ellington Band in the early 40's, Coltrane in the 60's, Miles Davis mid 60's quintets, the rags of Scott Joplin, the music of George Gershwin or Stephen Foster or Aaron Copland, the bluegrass of Bill Monroe, the country of Hank Williams, the blues of Robert Johnson, the rock and roll of Elvis, Little Richard and Chuck Berry - this is quintessential America. And it rocks like a m****f****!!

This is as authoritative as a collection can get, produced by John Hammond of Columbia Records, the guy who "discovered" Count Basie and Bob Dylan and produced "Spirituals to Swing" and all the rest, and Tony Heilbut, historian and gospel fanatic. These guys know the best when they hear it, and they have crammed an amazing amount of the best into just 2 CD's.

Format: Audio CD
I acquired this as an LP set in 1980. The tracks are arranged chronologically, and illustrate the remarkable progression of African-American spiritual music as recorded on Columbia records. This label is remarkable in that, beginning in the early part of the 20th century, it developed an extensive library of various American music forms. Not only is this compilation a good primer for gospel neophytes, but it is also essential for anyone involved in religious music -- particularly gospel music history. Pick this set up quickly, before it goes out of print again!

Format: Audio CD
This is probably the most solid gospel compilation I've found. The selection is smart, elegant and historically significant over a span of decades. But best of all, you can feel the spirit move.
From solo acts to choirs, I don't think there's a cut here that doesn't hold it's own and then some. I appreciate the chronological arrangement especially as it gives context to social commentary, esp Staple Singers' 'Why' and (my all-time favorite group) GGJS' 'Stalin...'.
I've listened to this record for 15 years--it always has something new to offer. I didn't even realize it had been reissued on CD. Now that's something to sing about!
