Sister Rosetta Tharpe "Gospel Train" LP
Unit price / per
"Rosetta Tharpe’s Gospel Train is an aptly named album. It is a collection of old songs — old as in venerable but also old as familiar — that mark her 'return' to the fold after several years of fraught experimentation for Decca Records, which had been trying to rebrand her for the R&B era. As an album of gospel songs and spirituals, Gospel Train thus represented as a re-righting of Tharpe’s professional path via the repertoire of African American spiritual song."
