AllMusic Review by

This 12-song compilation by The Soul Stirrers features the lead vocals of Sam Cooke in a pure gospel format. This material, recorded before Cooke began tackling pop songs in late 1956, is considered by many aficionados to be his best. Songs include "Nearer to Thee," "One More River," "Must Jesus Bear the Cross Alone," "Any Day Now," and "Peace in the Valley."
