Fills a major gap

"I would have bought this cd if it was just for one song - the live version of "Too close to heaven." Having listened to nearly all of the gospel performers of the golden era - both known and unknown - that song performance is the most electrifying and overwhelming there is!But there's more to this cd than just that song. During her four decades of singing, Griffin recorded barely a hundred sides and this cd includes most of her finest performances. Surprisingly, Bessie Griffin's great singing is rarely found on compilations and only two cds are available featuring this fine singer. This cd therefore fills a major gap.If you like traditional gospel singers like Mahalia Jackson you should like this artist as well. She is worth checking out!"
