AllMusic Review by

Not exactly the strongest introduction to Mahalia Jackson's brilliance, the budget-priced Best Loved Spirituals can't be faulted for its performances, but as it doesn't contain any of the singer's best-known songs it's hardly a good starting point for beginners, while longtime fans will undoubtedly already have everything here anyway. As single-disc collections go, Columbia's 16 Most Requested Songs is still your best bet.
