As the only compilation of the Singer Silvertone Singers' gospel widely available as of this writing, listeners curious about their music have no real choice but to pick it up, even though the sound is muddy and the packaging poor.

This disc is a peek into the Swan Silvertone's recording career with King records in the 40's. The packaging is poor, the sound quality okay considering the timeframe, but despite these setbacks, the performances here are awesome. The silvertones had a predominantly jubilee style about them in the beginning of their recording career, and evidences of Golden Gate Quartet influences do abound. The arrangements are stellar, and the addition of a nylon string guitar being played on five of these eight songs makes a simple yet great accompaniment to the top notch singing here. A very high recommendation on this one.
