AllMusic Review by

Part of Calvin Records' superlative THIS IS GOSPEL series of vintage black gospel compilations, THIS IS GOSPEL VOLUME 28: HOB LEGENDS collects the best of the best. These 20 tracks are by the superstars of black gospel, from Shirley Caesar's "Millennial Reign" to the Reverend James Cleveland's "Jesus Will." Standards like the Davis Sisters' "Get Right With God" and Clara Ward's "How I Got Over" are essential touchstones of the form. This is a perfect introduction to classic black gospel.
