Shout Sister Shout is a brand-new collection including previously unreleased group (tracks 1-16) and solo (tracks 17-31) recordings from 1957 to 1971.
Not only did Sister Rosetta audaciously lead black gospel out of the church and into nightclubs and concert venues during the late 1930s thus broadening its demographics exponentially if risking the wrath of the pious — she saw no conflict in singing holy material for the duly converted and an occasional earthy blues for the rhythm and blues market. Whether she was belting out a joyous invitation to hop aboard the Gospel Train or announcing her yen for a tall skinny papa, Tharpe emoted from the very depths of her soul, deftly accompanying her booming, melismatic pipes with a blistering, single-string-permeated guitar technique that rivaled that of blueswoman Memphis Minnie (or any axe-toting male on the scene, for that matter). Displaying a dazzling stage presence that radiated star quality, the Sister was wowing crowds across the nation well prior to Mahalia Jackson's ascendancy to the throne as gospel's queen.
