The Authentic Holy Spirit

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This CD can really transmit a true experience of the Holy Spirit,
now I know what they mean by 'Something got a Hold of Me'.
So much of contemporary 'gospel' music tries hard but is
sadly just faking it, and no one even knows anymore what it
used to be all about. If you want a taste of the
True Power, this is it."
The Greatest Gospel Recording Ever

"This CD is at the top of the list of must have recordings. There is not a single weak song in this 1955 live recording from the Shrine Auditorium. A virtual who's who of gospel greats, this CD features Sam Cooke, Dorothy Love Coates, James Cleveland, Albertina Walker, Joe May, the Soul Stirrers and the Pilgrim Travelers. I defy anyone, anywhere to find a better single recording than Cooke's and the Soul Stirrer's "Nearer To Thee." I listened to it twelve straight times and was moved each time. Nothing Cooke ever did when he crossed over into the mainstream can touch this recording. But, wait. Dorothy Love Coates and the Original Gospel Harmonettes get your blood pumping with the invigorating "Get Away Jordan." I think it would even make Al Gore stomp his feet. I love gospel music, but not gospel music from today, but not the type of gospel sung by Kirk Franklin. I like the real, down home, grandma and grandpa gospel that inspired my forefathers. That gave them hope in the most trying of circumstances. I found that music on this CD. When Ethel Davenport sings "My Troubles Are So Hard To Bear," it makes you want to cry. This is a little-known, but must have treasure."
