7º volumen de la fascinante colección completista de las grabaciones de una de las cantantes de música espiritual por excelencia, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, enorme intérprete de gospel-jazz-soul-blues electrificado. Esta entrega cubre el periodo de los primeros sesentas y es fabuloso como todo lo que se pueda escuchar de ella, con independencia de que uno sea ateo, agnóstico, creyente o cualquiera que sea su elección.

7th volume of a fascinating collection of recordings by Sister Rosetta Tharpe, great electrified religious gospel-jazz-soul-blues performer, this one covers the early sixties period and it's as awesome as any of hers you can find out there, regardless of whether one can be an atheist, agnostic, believer or whatever it's your choice. To listen to the philosopher's stone where almost all foreign music comes from, to add (e.g.) to the work songs, children's songs, ports sing-alongs or party tunes, spirituals were not only a font but always a fantastic training for early or experienced singers. And she is one of the very best that can be heard in the matter, and that's without having said anything about the fascinating backing voices and accompanying musicians, as is also fascinating to check out how the lady plays the electric guitar in any video you can find.
