This 2-CD anthology provides an overview of a true cult figure. Acclaimed as one of the greatest gospel singers of her generation, Rosetta Tharpe also played amazingly unique electric guitar. She did not limit herself to the spiritual, but often spilled over into blues and swing. Born in 1921 in Arkansas, Tharpe continued to record through the 1960s, but her most interesting work dates back to the '30s and '40s. This set contains all her best originals, remastered and with new artwork.
