This book is dreadful. It is full of confusing information on some details that would make you wonder if the author was as familiar with Miss Jackson as he claimed to have been. By comparison to 'Just Mahalia, Baby', 'Got To Tell It' does not need to be put on bookshelves anywhere in the world. It paints a picture of Mahalia Jackson that no own who loved her or her music would want to become familiar with. I don't know what the author's intentions were with this book, but they sure as h*** weren't good ones.
