Anthology specialists Proper Records has issued a fabulous, 4-CD boxed set of Sister Rosetta Tharpe's work, titled Sister Rosetta Tharpe: The Original Soul Sister, accompanied by a thick, 40-page book of historical photos, liner notes and exhaustive discography information, courtesy of Joop Visser Raved.

Rosetta Tharpe with Cab CallowayEvident from every track is the fact that for Tharpe, the guitar was not merely accompaniment. More often than not, she gives her instrument 'equal billing', so to speak, opening up extended guitar solos (such as on her cover of Washington Philip's "That's All"), showing herself to be virtuoso.

"Rock Me" is the subtitle of the second disc, and serves to further accent Tharpe's integration into the swing circuit, with cuts included from wartime broadcast of "Jubilee", a live-recored radio broadcast aimed by the AFRS (Armed Forces Radio Services) aimed to entertain overseas troops. On "Sin Is To Blame", she is backed by Erskine Hawkins & His Orchestra, and on another take on her hit "This Train", she teams up with Louis Jordan and His Tympany Five. ---gospelflava.com
