Editorial Reviews

This instructive and informative double CD set features a rundown of some of the most significant figures in 20th-century gospel music, including the composer Thomas A. Dorsey, the singer and actor Paul Robeson, and one of the all-time greats of the genre, Mahalia Jackson. Gospel groups include these menial late 19th and early 20th-century Fisk University Jubilee Singers, whose triumphant "Blow, Gabriel Blow" is a highlight, while the Reverend Gary Davis's "Twelve Gates to the City" highlights the long standing connection between gospel music and it's sinful cousin, the blues.

This was a nice CD but it wasn't what I was looking for. It is a choir singing. I wanted an individual. It would be fine for anyone wanting a choir. I did think it was a little hard to understand at times. Like maybe it wasn't clear or the audio wasn't balanced right.

If you enjoy blues music and early American History and are more than interested in how things originate that this album is really a lesson in both. How else can this music be written than through human emotion played out through day to day toil? Look deep into this music and you can see where it's heading and the artists through early blues music came to find their heart for raw emotion.

Although the recordings themselves leave much to be desired, the songs themselves tell quite a story. I am so glad someone is preserving these treasures.
