AllMusic Review by

A solid collection of 15 gospel greats from the legendary Hob label. Drawn from the label's 50-year history as a gospel music giant, this compilation features stellar tracks from the Clara Ward Specials, the Gospel Harmonettes, the Caravans, the Stars of Faith, and the Meditation Singers. As all these performances were recorded for single-length recordings (three minutes or so), there's no real stretching out on any of the themes, but their conciseness also pulls each of the performances into sharper focus. Grand and glorious singing, indeed.
