AllMusic Review by

Absolutely The Best Of Gospel Volume 1 pairs classic gospel songs with the genre's most popular performers. The Staple Singers' "Will The Circle Be Unbroken" and "Reach Out And Touch A Hand," the Five Blind Boys Of Alabama's "Just A Closer Walk With Thee," the Caravans' "Lord Don't Leave Us Now" and the Mighty Echoes' "I Found Joy" are some of the album's highlights, and performances by Aretha Franklin and the Carolina Spirituals show that this collection deserves its name.
