Product Description:

Includes liner notes by Mark Marymount.
This is part of the Collectables Gospel Classics series.
Liner Note Author: Mark Marymont.
Arranger: Shirley Caesar.
One of gospel's greatest, along with Mahalia Jackson, Marion Williams, and Dorothy Love Coates, former Caravans star Shirley Caesar has a hugely powerful voice and a preachifying style to go with it. Both are heard to advantage on this nicely rounded collection of material recorded (from the sound of it - Mark Marymont's liner notes make no mention) in her late-'60s heyday. Instrumentation is the classic gospel lineup of organ, piano, bass, and drums, but toward the end of the album, bluesy electric guitar starts to creep into songs like the riffy "Thank You Jesus." Another highlight is "The Operation," an impassioned gospel rap about the visions she had during a heart operation as a child.
