Album Notes and Credits
There should be more compilations like CLASSIC AFRICAN AMERICAN GOSPEL by Smithsonian Folkways. Instead of focusing soley on an individual period, this collection compiles classic gospel performances from many different decades to give the listener a holistic picture of the African American gospel experience. From the rustic folk and blues of Elizabeth Cotten and the Reverend Gary Davis to contemporary renderings in modern churches, CLASSIC AFRICAN AMERICAN GOSPEL spans 50 years in 75 minutes and is a great single-disc introduction to one of America's most vibrant musical genres. Includes a 32-page booklet with detailed descriptions of each track and a historic overview of gospel from the Great Awakening forward.
