Mahalia Jackson is also one of those artists, who I love, even if I don't like their musical style too much. But Mahalias blend of gospel, blues and rock is irresistable. Her powerful, honest, authentic interpretation is marvellous, her voice is absolutely stunning and amazingly emotional. Combined with her exceptional personality I think her work is absolutely brilliant, and disregarding any musical styles deserves my deepest respect. I have no words to describe this wonderful music. But I can easily recommend Mahalia Jackson for any music fan who wants to hear music which enters your ears and settles in your heart. And I think this CD features a good mix of her work, and is therefore a very good introduction. But feel free to check any of her CDs, for she has much more to offer (Newport 56 live, etc.)! If you're young and you don't like this music today, keep her in mind. Perhaps in a few years you will never like to miss her again. It took me 20 years to rediscover her!

Mahaila was truley a gifted singer who sang from deep in the gut of her soul. I really enjoyed her song trouble in this world. A must for the gospel fan.

Mahalia sings like no other, her genre just happens to be Gospel. A must have album for your Mahalia Jackson collection.

I grew up listening to Mahalia. Nobody has been able to replace her. That voice is in a class all its own. When she sings "I'm Going Home to Be with God" at the funeral in Imitation of Life, I am destroyed.

I had heard gospel singing before but it never made any great impression on me. My friend's mom told me about Mahalia Jackson, who she said was hailed as the "Queen of Gospel" and had her own TV show long before I was born. One day, I found this particular album in the library, listened to it in my car, and was completely blown away. Not only did she possess an extraordinary voice, but she sang as if inspired by the Almighty Himself. I have never been so moved and uplifted in my life. Whether she sings rocking, old-school songs or her own rendition of "The Lord's Prayer" or "The Troubles of this World", you feel transcendent. She is an artist of the Soul. This album features the best collection of her repertory and in her prime. I played it for a friend who is an agnostic and she absolutely loved it and felt "spiritually transformed". I would recommend this album to anyone.

Tons of Mahalia Jackson around. I picked this one because it contains all her greatest songs and has a terrific story about Mahalia in the CD cover. A cross cultural reference: Mahalia means "Highest One or Highest Lord" in Sanskrit, the ancient language of India.
