Thinking back to my younger days, I took a chance and invested in this CD, and Volume II, at the same time. WOW!! Suffice it to say that those two Mahalia CDs now receive more playing time than any of my other CDs.
One drawback; however, I learned not to play these on my stereo when it was time to go to sleep -- I just couldn't keep still -- my feet kept moving to the music -- the music is just too powerful, too stimulating -- had to limit it to daytime use only.
I would have loved to have been in the live audience to hear Ms. Jackson sing while she drew breath upon this earth.
Does it get any better than this ... I think NOT.
I hope I run into Mahalia and Elvis when I make it to heaven, and I hope that I get to hear them belt out those gospel tunes with their heavenly voices -- definitely something to look forward to! Wow, again!
Listen to her in "I Will Move On Up a Little Higher" or "In the Upper Room" and you'll know why she will always belong with the top artists. Never surpassed. What comes out of her is more than words, more than music. It's as if Someone Else is talking through her.
