AllMusic Review by

One of the better releases from K-Tel's Back to Back series includes ten songs, five each from country gospel legends the Jordanaires and J.D. Sumner & the Stamps, on one disc. The combined artists are similar enough that the transition between the two is smooth and the gospel material, including "Uncloudy Day," "Peace in the Valley," "How Great Thou Art," and "His Hand in Mine," represents genuinely decent performances of these traditional spirituals. Both vocal groups at various times backed up Elvis Presley, making this of particular interest to fans of "the King's" gospel material.
