The World's Greatest Gospel is a fine 16-track collection that boasts solid recordings from some fo the biggest names in gospel, including Shirley Caesar, the Rev. James Cleveland, the Five Blind Boys of Alabama, the Swan Silverstones, Jesse Dixon, Clara Ward and the Staple Singers. It shouldn't be seen as a definitive collection, but as an excellent sampler that helps novices get acquainted with the genre.
