Liner Note Author: Anthony Heilbut.
Like its male counterpoint, this anthology spotlights contributions from both famous stars (Mahalia Jackson, Marion Williams, Dorothy Love Coates, Sister Rosetta Tharpe) and obscure figures (Mary Johnson Davis, Jessie Mae Renfro, Lucy Smith, and Goldia Haynes, among others), presenting a hefty 31 selections. While some might quibble that celebrated stars Jackson and Williams get six tracks apiece, it's hard to argue with the greatness of what's presented by them. Others who give head-turning performances include Frances Steadman, Roberta Martin, and Clara Ward. ~ Ron Wynn
Rolling Stone (10/15/93, p.76) - 5 Stars - Classic - "...[THE GREAT GOSPEL WOMEN] provides posthumouus recognition for innovators of superior achievement..."
