God truly has smiled on gospel music over the years. No matter where you are in this country and some parts of the world Gospel music has made its mark. There's nothing like waking up on Sunday mornings listening to the sounds of James Cleveland singing "Jesus is the best thing that ever happened". It goes on and on. If you are ever troubled and the spoken words of man
just wont do.... First call on Jesus and then listen to this CD

What a great cd compilation!! All the songs (we sung in our choir) written expressively from Rev. James Cleveland (for the few exceptions and even those) complimented his vocals and spiritual heights to reach the audience who together with the Reverend reached and lifted their hands high to the Almighty Saviour. This cd is an everyday tool in my cd player, and these days it is needed. You won't ever walk alone. Hallelujah!

This CD is what good gospel music is all about, it reminds you of the times when our families were united, when children and parent talked together, prayed together and went to church together. Remember Sunday Dinners?

some of the song's on the C.D. weren't recorded from the very begining such as "I don't feel noways tried" the song starts from the middle of the original live album as well as other song's on the disc, but music lover's will be robbed of some of the very good song's that he has recored.

....plus the Cleveland Classics God has Smiled on Me, I Don't Feel No Ways Tired and Lord Help Me to Hold Out. But the choice of these, in my opinion, is Jesus is the Best Thing in which James banters (testifies, rather) between verse ('I heard Gladys Knight sing this, I changed the words'...and later I don't know who Gladys was talking about, but') and the congregational response is one of appreciation of how clever it was for Cleveland to adopt the tune for gospel, but also how true it feels to each listener, personally. Also, I think Gladys *did* manage to sneak in to do uncredited background harmonies to James. It was a rare moment, a great moment, captured on tape.
This is a CD of gospel greatness. Find it and get it.

One of the BEST gospel albums! Not this new stuff playing nowadays! True gospel from the originator! What a delight!!! Memories of hearing this being played on the radio while getting ready for church in the 70's & early 80's. The BEST Gospel music! The focus was on the Lord, like it should be. Love it! Love it! Love it!

This item arrived very quickly. I love the music. It is very inspiring. If you like gospel music that is a little slow paced, you will love this CD collection. I love this collection and I recommend!

I love this CD, oh, my heavens. I am wearing it out! Bought it for "Peace Be Still," but EVERY selection -- at least for me -- has proven glorious. As a disciple of Christ, I appreciate Christian music in all its forms. But, with malice toward none, I gotta say it: the OLD stuff is what stirs my soul. So God bless the enduring musical legacy of the Rev. James Cleveland. Of the 14 songs, the biggest surprise by far is "Christ The Redeemer" -- a stark and haunting tune of minimal instrumentation that speaks to Christ's agony on the cross and triumph over death. It's followed by "In God's Own Time (My Change Will Come), an exuberant expression of faith that will have you wanting to clap your hands and stomp your feet, even as you steer the car. LOL! So be careful!!!
