The weather ‘s turning cold this morning and listening to Sister Rosetta Tharpe singing and playing her guitar warmed me a bit… Here’s 22 tracks of great gospel singing and great guitar playing by the Sister.

  1. >thank you very much.I don’t know much about gospel, a friend recommanded Sallie Martindo you have any of her records?

  2. >Sorry, i don’t think i have one record by her but i have a few anthologies of gospel where she may appear. There are many styles and kinds of gospel music and maybe i’ll post more about this in the future.Thanks

  3. >well thank you any way, do you have any other gospel singer of that style you like.

  4. >I really like blues and gospel singers who accompany themselves on the guitar, like Reverend Gary Davis, Blind Willie Johnson, this kind of stuff but i also enjoy “pure” gospel singing too…

  5. >I didn’t know what gospel is until i found the site “crossroad club 27” they have all sorts of popular and not so popular music and some obscure gospel like reverend G M Gates and reverend Emmett Dickinson that sounds more like a sermon and are hard to listen to at first.About gospel blues i know even less. Mister “Broke Down Engine” posted Gray Davis and Willie Johnson and another musicians named Pearly Brown. I also heared on collection Ed Bell and Arvella Gray I think they play gospel blues but I don’t know where can I buy this music. Maybe you have it?
