AllMusic Review by

While the Live from Mountain Stage series has consistently yielded excellent listening results, this gospel volume is a particularly welcome treat -- the music has long been a part of the program, with hymns once a staple of every show and traditional spirituals often included in each week's finale. Assembling 11 of the program's best performances to date, the disc features rousing cuts from Fontella Bass ("This Little Light of Mine"), the Blind Boys of Alabama ("Brother Moses"), the Fairfield Four ("Dig a Little Deeper") and Sweet Honey in the Rock ("Beatitudes/Peace").
