a classic, inadequately described

this is a very great classic of gospel music, and of american popular song. it is from 1973 (not the 30s, as indicated in the pitiful one-sentence description). after a run as a raunchy blues artist in the 20s performing as 'georgia tom' (for example on tampa red's 'tight like that'), dorsey founded the modern style of african-american gospel music. this album is an all-star tribute, and though dorsey is involved, each cut features a great gospel artist of the period when the record was released. so i'm going to add the artist info by cut #:
