This 10-track budget compilation brings together some classic performances of gospel standards by artists generally working the pop side of the street. You get Louis Armstrong doing "When the Saints Go Marching In," Della Reese singing "If I Ever Get to Heaven," the Ink Spots tackling "It Is No Secret," the Mills Brothers' rendition of "Bringing in the Sheaves" and the Impressions' big crossover hit, "Amen." Selections from Carmen McRae ("His Eye Is on the Sparrow"), Little Richard ("Search Me Lord"), Bobby Blue Bland ("Ain't God Something"), Earl Grant ("Lead Me, Guide Me") and Johnny Nash ("I Want Jesus to Walk with Me") complete the package.
