AllMusic Review by

An extremely useful single-disc introduction both to Calvin Records' extensive THIS IS GOSPEL series and mid-20th century black gospel in general, THIS IS GOSPEL VOLUME 12: THE GREATEST HITS OF BLACK GOSPEL is a well-chosen 20-track anthology featuring all the stars of the gospel scene. Superstars like Shirley Caesar, the Five Blind Boys of Alabama, the Swan Silvertones, and lesser-known acts such as Bishop Billy Robinson combine to provide a solid overview of the richness and vitality of classic gospel music in all its forms.
