AllMusic Review by

This 22-track compilation features some of Sister Rosetta Tharpe’s best gospel numbers, ranging from the poignant to the uplifting to the out-and-out rollicking. The material dates from the late 1930s (“Rock Me”) through the ‘50s (“Up Above My Head"), and provides a nice introduction to the venerable singer’s work.
