AllMusic Review by

The third volume in Proper's excellent summation of gospel music from the '20s to the '50s focuses on popular gospel female singing of the post-war period. Though the concept isn't a grand slam -- there are few close similarities between gospel queen Mahalia Jackson and the seminal guitar preacher Sister Rosetta Tharpe -- it's certainly a great way to acquire half-a-dozen or so performances from some of the best gospel female artists. Also included are sides from Sister Ernestine Washington, a full-voiced singer in the mold of Jackson, and a few glorious sides from Dorothy Love Coates and the Original Gospel Harmonettes.
