"I'm Beggin You Please"
Dwayne | Maryland | 05/31/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Growing up, even though I'm only 20, I didn't really care too much for the voice of Marion Williams. Now, as I've grown older, I can see just what a magnificent singer she was. As I once heard someone say, she has such "soaring beauty" like a bird. I love this CD! And I give it 5 more stars!On the other hand, I give Shanachie Entertainment Corporation 2 stars. Like with other CDs that they have put out (GREAT GOSPEL WOMEN I & II, GREAT GOSPEL MEN, etc.), they tease people with the songs- they butcher the songs up so bad, and right before the song really gets "rockin," they fade the songs out. I understand that many people don't like the "hoopin and hollerin" of Gospel music, but that's part of what Gospel is! I come from a wild Baptist/Pentecostal background, and I know that quite a few others do also. We would like to have the entire tracks released- shouting, hollering, screaming...etc. If companies can release 8-12 minute tracks of HEAVY METAL OR PUNK MUSIC, and then have another 2-4 minute reprise, these Gospel issuers can release atleast 4-5 minutes of purified BLACK Gospel!For example, take the song "Packin' Up" which is track 23. The song is 2 minutes and 7 seconds. Right before everybody (Marion, the Stars of Faith, and the audience- and I...LOL!) started getting happy and cheering, what happens? It fades out! That really takes away from the entire song. It leaves us wondering and saying "What happens next?"I understand that we can't make everyone happy, but if you're trying to reveal and unveil the beautiful artistry of a gifted artist, then the different sides should be shown.GREAT CD over all!"
Great performance, great songs

"Marion Williams was one of Clara Ward's singers. She was very good and this CD shows it. It has great versions of ol'time favorites like "How I got over", "Precious Lord", "Stand by me" (the second best version I've heard, after Mavis Staples'), "In the upper room" (if you're used to Mahalia's version, get ready: this one's got rythm)."
