AllMusic Review by

MCA Special Products' Country Gospel Greats contains ten country-gospel highlights from the vaults of MCA Records, concentrating on tunes they acquired with the purchase of Decca Records. Considering that the music was recorded over a number of years, it should come as no surprise that the compilation isn't particularly cohesive, but there are enough good tracks -- Merle Haggard's "When God Comes and Gathers His Jewels," Willie Nelson's "There Shall Be Showers of Blessings," Conway Twitty's "Suppertime," Patsy Cline's "He Will Do for You," Loretta Lynn's "(There'll Be) Peace in the Valley," Ernest Tubb's "Family Bible," Red Foley's "No Tears in Heaven" -- to make it worth its budget price.
