    This is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files.
    A tribute to pioneering folk-gospel singer and guitarist Sister Rosetta Tharpe, this collection packs a lot of wallop and joy into its 17 tracks, including fine versions of "Nobody's Fault But Mine" by Joan Osborne and the Holmes Brothers, "This Train" by Janis Ian, and "Didn't It Rain" by Marie Knight, all of which were standard pieces in Tharpe's repertoire. Also included here is an audio/video clip of Tharpe herself performing another of her set pieces, the glorious "Down by the Riverside." It's all fun, energetic, and inspiring. ~ Steve Leggett
