AllMusic Review by

The aptly-titled GOSPEL ON FIRE is a fire-and-brimstone overview of the highest points of Calvin Records' enormous THIS IS GOSPEL series of single-artist gospel anthologies. High points include a scorching pair of tunes by the great Shirley Caesar, the Reverend James Cleveland's masterly "Get Right Church, Let's Go Home" and a startling version of "Amazing Grace" by the Swan Silvertones that re-energizes that most familiar hymn. This is an excellent staring point for the newcomer cowed by the large number of releases in the series.
