Precious Memories: Women Of Gospel Music
by Various Artists
Released: Nov 1998
Peacock's examination of the massive role women played in the development of gospel music focuses on the soulful, organ-drenched performances that came in the wake of the success of Mahalia Jackson. The frantic Dorothy Love Coates track is amazing, and early gospel-blues guitar pioneer Sister Rosetta Tharpe also gets a moment to flash her brilliance.
