These are songs that can uplift you and give you the spirit to carry on through the day! With Dorothy's powerful lead vocals, Mildred Miller's growling contralto and Willie Mae Newberry's piercing suprano, each and every song on this cd is a winner. From the rocking "Get Away Jordan", to the joyful "You Better Run" to the bluesy "That's Enough" and the soulful "Lord, Don't Forget About Me", these tracks are winning songs sung by triumphant sisters filled with the Holy Spirit! The Gospel Harmonettes were truly one of the stand-out groups of Gospels' Golden Age and with songs written and sung by a talent like Coates, how could they go wrong!? Only the immortal Caravans can match them when it comes to sheer talent and intensity!!!

I join with those who herald this as the greatest gospel singer of all time. That is not a designation that today's artists who listen for impeccable clarity and technical excellence would be likely to make, but strip away all the veneer, and what you are left with in vocal music is either an artist who can pull you into their experience, or not. There is no way to give this singer a serious listen and not hear her greatness. In fact, DLC takes you way beyond hearing and into the realm of the sacred. I was first introduced to her music as a child, some forty years ago, and it continues to impact me today. My mother spent the last three years of her life with Alzheimer Disease. She was a lover of music, but the music of DLC would move her past her disease into the presence of God. I applaud the artists of our day, and bid them God's speed in lifting the spirits of today's listeners. But there are times when I lay all of that aside and let DLC take me into the presence of God. She is beyond talented, gifted and the general terms we use to speak of artist. She is transciendent - in a class by herself. By no means divine, but without a doubt - divinely enabled. She is my unsung hero.

The Original Gospel Harmonettes are overlooked treasures in music history. The "original" was added to their names to distinguish them from other gospel groups with the same name. Since then, it has been dropped. Although Dorothy Love Coates was the main lead singer, all of the members led songs. Coates, Mildred Miller Howard, Odessa Edwards, Willie Mae Newberry Garth, Vera Kolb, and Evelyn Starks(pianist) provide some classic gospel gems with original songs by Coates as well as cover of some of the most popular songs in gospel history. Coates has written and/or arranged over 300 songs. Two volumes are on this disc. Volume one was released as "He's Calling Me" in 1955, then reissued as "The Best of..." in 1970. The second volume was originally released in 1971. Highlights include their acclaimed "Get Away Jordan." Also, note Miller Howard's shared leads on "He's Calling Me" and "Where Shall I Be." Starks is magnificent on the piano. Fans might also want to see the documentary on the group, produced by the University of Alabama. This was presumably the last interview that Coates gave before she died. The sad part is that when she died, she was still fighting to get royalties due to her from others recording her compositions over the years. As one other reviewer noted, musicologists considered Coates' voice to be "ragged" among other things. However, most agree that her passion and sincerety were what really made her unique. Many other groups began to imitate her movements, while performing. If you had a chance to see her perform live, then you'd understand what they mean. The group's arrangments were complex, but they were always on point. They took call and response patterns to another level, and the jazz/blues/gospel arrangements of Coates made them different from most other gospel groups of the period.
