The Best of Dorothy Love Coates & the Original Gospel Harmonettes, Vols. 1-2

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Dave Marsh
One of the cornerstones of golden age gospel, this set compiles two vinyl discs originally compiled by Barret Hansen Dr. Demento. It includes all of the famous Dorothy Love Coates songs: "That's Enough," with a searing vocal that makes Aretha sound like a poetry reciter; "99 and a Half," the model for Wilson Pickett's secular version; "Get Away Jordan" and "I'm Sealed," which kicked off the group's career; "No Hiding Place," a purely fearsome blues; and "You Can't Hurry God He's Right on Time," later to become the Supremes' "You Can't Hurry Love."
