AllMusic Review by

One of the best and longest-running groups in contemporary music (they've been together since the 1930s), the Five Blind Boys of Mississippi's special brand of gospel fervor is unrivaled. There's no shortage of best-of's by the group on the market, but MORE OF THEIR BEST is a welcome addition. Whether on rolling R&B flavored numbers like "Will Jesus Be Waiting for Me," tent revival shouters like "Father I Stretch Out My Hands to Thee," or soothing hymns like "Song of Praise," the Five Blind Boys turn Christian faith into some astonishingly moving sounds.
