Precious Lord: The Great Gospel Songs Of Thomas A. Dorsey
by Various Artists
Released: Jan 1973
It starts with a story that hooks you and primes you for the richness to follow. The soulful piano drops you dead center into a 1950's "meetin' hall" and it doesn't let up a bit from there. Sung by some of the strongest bricks in the early Gospel foundation, Precious Lord is one of those albums you can honestly classify as a voyage. Thank you, Mr. Dorsey.
