Gospel Train by Sister Rosetta Tharpe
Released: Jan 1956
Label: Verve
You may not be able to actually see Sister Rosetta Tharpe jumping up and down and playing guitar like a female born-again Jimi Hendrix, but you can feel the energy coming out of her like fire. Sexy, holy fire. In her time, Tharpe created as much controversy as converts, but what matters today is that her gospel, blues and rock 'n' roll remains vital music.
