AllMusic Review by

A nine song budget collection that brings together early Vee-Jay sides, live performances from both the late 1950s and early 1970s. The early sides are taken from vinyl and 78 shellac sources and exhibit a fair amount of surface noise, but the music in performances of "Too Close," "Good News," and "Don't Drive Me Away" move mountains and make all audiophile concerns somewhat mute. A nice little budget compilation that makes a nice addition to anyone's gospel collection.
