AllMusic Review by

Featuring Lou Rawls and Sam Cooke among its many members, the long-running gospel vocal group the Highway QCs was one of the most popular and prolific black gospel groups of the post-war era, when gospel was increasingly taking its musical cues from rhythm and blues. The outstanding 16-track anthology THIS IS GOSPEL VOLUME 17: THE BEST OF HIGHWAY QCs showcases all of the group's best-known lineups on hits like "I Used To Wonder" and "Somewhere To Lay My Head." The set also features collaborations with the Dixie Hummingbirds, Swan Silvertones, and the Mighty Clouds of Joy.
