Product Description:

This 18-track (there are two unlisted tracks in addition to the 16 listed ones) collection of 1950s era black Southern gospel is undeniably funky, joyous and hopeful, and it makes a marvelous introduction to the golden age of the genre. Standout cuts include the opener, "Morning Train," from the Original Five Blind Boys of Alabama, the powerfully soulful "When the Gates Swing Open" by the Soul Stirrers, and Sister Rosetta Tharpe's uptown soul take on "Gospel Train" (one of the unlisted tracks is a live version by Tharpe of the song and features her impressive and distinctive guitar style). Anyone who doubts that the great secular soul singles of the '60s had their roots firmly planted in gospel should check out this energetic set. ~ Steve Leggett
