Named for the gospel classic made famous by the Edwin Hawkins Singers, GOING UP YONDER: THE BEST OF GOSPEL CHOIRS is a fine survey of some of the high points of contemporary black gospel. Artists on these 12 tracks include the Edwin Hawkins Singers, Danniebelle Hall, the Reverend Clay Evans, Bishop Paul Morton, Walt Whitman and Soul Children, and the legendary Andrae Crouch. Diehard gospel choir fans may well have most or all of these familiar tracks already, but GOING UP YONDER: THE BEST OF GOSPEL CHOIRS makes an excellent brief summation of the style.
