The title Gospel Blockbusters conjures images of a K-Tel compilation of CCM on sale for $5.99 in America's less discriminating gas stations, but this Verity collection is a rock-solid set of contemporary gospel. Nearly every one of the leading lights of the scene is represented and the selections are among the best of their careers. Highlights are many, but include "Stomp" by Kirk Franklin, "It's Time" by the Winans, "Let the Praise Begin" by Fred Hammond & Radical for Christ, "Victory Chant (Hail Jesus)" by Donnie McClurkin, and "Take Me Back" by Andraé Crouch. Best of all, the set's capped off by a magnificent performance of "Walk in the Light" by Aretha Franklin.
