Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
This four-disc box set from Proper assembles all four original volumes they issued separately with a detailed booklet of notes. Those titles -- This Train, Rock Me, Singing in My Soul, and Shout Sister Shout -- document Sister Rosetta Tharpe's Decca recordings from the late '30s through WWII. Assembled like this, they provide a nearly exhaustive portrait of Tharpe's guitar artistry, her songwriting, and her amazingly large voice. Essential.
