This is an outstanding collection of Sam Cookes finer gospel songs. His voice is extremely smooth and although from early in his career, still with the power to move you that he demonstrated so well later on. The album is very vocal based, and the minimal music is there to augment the vocals and to highlight the power of the gospel message. Overall a great collection of Cookes gospel and recommended if you're a fan of either Sam Cooke or Gospel. If you like this I HIGHLY recommend Aretha Franklins gospel album 'Amazing Grace', which is a live album of her gospel work and VERY moving and powerful.
