For those who were convinced the Weavers were godless Commie sympathizers, "Gospel" serves as an argument that you have to rethink the godless part. Then again, the Weavers had always been singing songs that came from traditional folk music, which has always had a strong spiritual element, best represented hear by "Follow the Drinking Gourd," the song originally sung by slaves following the Underground Railroad to get north to freedom. This collection is culled from recordings made between 1955 and 1963, which means you have both the Pete Seeger and Erik Darling years of the Weavers represented (although the balance definitely falls towards the latter in this collection). My favorite is "If I Had a Hammer," mainly because that is the song that constitutes a call to social action, which is what the folk music movement was ultimately all about, even going back to the time of the Weavers. Even beyond the message, the singing of songs like "Sinner Man" and "True Religion" is what makes them powerful. The reasons for listening to the Weavers have always been the message and the harmonies, and "Gospel" provides solid offerings of both. Besides, this particular collection offers a lot of Weaver songs you probably have not run into on their more tradition "folk" albums.
