World's Greatest Gospel [Roadshow] Review

by Steve Huey

The budget-priced double-disc set World's Greatest Gospel may not have all the most important songs in gospel history, but it does have a great many of the most important performers, boasting contributions by the likes of the Staple Singers, the Swan Silvertones, Shirley Caesar, Rev. James Cleveland, the Five Blind Boys of Alabama, the Dixie Hummingbirds, the Angelics, the Caravans, Clara Ward, Rev. C.L. Franklin, the Harmonizing Four, and Albertina Walker, among many others. As such, it may serve as an effective entryway into the genre for novices.
