An Awsome Classic
Robert D. Proe | Marina, CA United States | 01/11/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love classic Black Gospel Music and have been a collector of such for more than 20 years. This CD takes me back to the time when I first attended a Holiness church. One can feel the Spirit through the songs, especially Heaven Belongs To You, Said I Wasn't Gonna tell Nobody, He Stays In My Room, and He Is Such An Understanding God. One feels the genuineness, sincerity, and soulfullness in the voices. Prof. Alex Bradford is in a class with such foundationary greats as Roberta Martin, Mahalia Jackson, Thomas Dorsey, and Clara Ward. For any serious lover of choir albums, this CD is a must for your collection."
Lifts you off your seat!
Jujube | NY, USA | 10/18/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Although this large choir must rehearse a lot, this album is not a studio recording. This is live church and every ounce of their joy, love and praise to God is poured into it.

If "Said I Wasn't Gonna Tell Nobody" doesn't lift you out of your seat, you should check your pulse to see if you're still alive.

The rest is a sure testimony of comfort strength and love.

The music is the best of call and response style, with ample improvisation, hand clapping and the sound of over 100 voices in full strength makes this one of my favorites.

I'm sitting and working and have this on full blast right now and can't wipe the smile off of my face.
