5.0 out of 5 stars Raly Soul 15 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
Nobody does soul quite like Sister Rosetta. Not only is she a mean blues guitarist, but she belts out gospel like her life depends on it. A huge influence to greats such as Aretha Franklin, Elvis Presley and notably, Johny Cash, true music lovers cannot afford to overlook this record.
One of the greats, definitely :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Sister Rosetta 13 Sep 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Pleasing that a substantial part of Sister Rosetta's oeuvre is thus well packaged and presented. I have withheld one star on a personal level because one track I hoped for was missing

A wonderful collection of gospel songs which I bought after being reminded of her fabulous singing in a re-run of Hugh Lawrie on Desert Island Discs.

3.0 out of 5 stars one for the archive. great tunes.
I bought this having listened to a track on the blues show on Radio 2. Great stuff, but the religious message gets a bit repetitive. still a good listen.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bear in mind, this is a review based on personal taste
I found this collection of music to be mostly of a religious, "praising the lord" type, when I was more interested in hearing sister Rosetta play the guitar, and perhaps a little... Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Rosetta Tharpe
A must for any fan of Gospel music, a mix of Gospel and jazz. Not entirely to my taste, but quite enjoyable nevertheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make a joyful noise unto the Lord
What I wonder is the "Devil's Music" supposed to be? I mean really-the music of Sister Rosetta Tharpe-who was not a nun-is nothing more than rock'n'roll anyway. Read more
