Album review

Various Artists - Great Day Coming

Subtitled "50 Gospel Greats", this collection draws together top tracks by most of the major figures in the field, including Mahalia Jackson, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, The Staple Singers, The Swan Silvertones, The Five Blind Boys Of Alabama, The Golden Gate Quartet, The Dixie Hummingbirds, The Soul Stirrers, The Edwin Hawkins Singers and Etta James. Rarely does one get a chance to hear such an all-embracing compilation and the experience is deeply impressive. All that's missing is a more detailed account of the artists involved. Apart from that, this comes recommended.

Rating: 4 / 10
