AllMusic Review by

Legendary Gospel Hall of Famer Richard Smallwood makes his debut for the RCA Inspiration label with Anthology Live, a two-disc live event that features 11 new songs and three medleys of previously released material. Supported once again by his powerful backing ensemble Vision, the D.C.-based artist played to a capacity crowd at Evangel Cathedral in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. An unusual amalgam of greatest-hits album, new album, and straightforward worship album, Anthology Live offers a diverse sound with plenty of featured guests like Ted Winn, Darlene Simmons, Angela Winbush, and Dottie Jones, with prayers and homilies interspersed throughout the performances.
