AllMusic Review by

Part of Calvin Records' outstanding THIS IS GOSPEL series of vintage gospel recordings, GREAT GOSPEL QUARTETS offers songs by the Swan Silvertones, the Highway QCs, the Davis Sisters, the Harmonizing Four, the Angelics, and the All-Star Gospel Quartet. Along with being a cornerstone of black gospel, the vocal quartet tradition eventually led to the development of doo-wop and rock & roll, making the 20-track THIS IS GOSPEL: GREAT GOSPEL QUARTETS a fine overview of an important style.
