In the standard process of reissue/repackage, Impluse! put together an eight-track compilation of John Coltrane numbers together under the Spiritual title and theme. The job must have seemed pretty easy since just about everything he recorded for the label could be considered in the spiritual order. The real problem, therefore, became deciding which pieces to leave off the compilation as opposed to which ones to include. There are certainly some beautiful works here: "Song of Praise" (an odd but delightful choice) and "Dear Lord" typify this compilation — in fact there's not a dud in the group.

Nothing less. An incredible mood piece. One of my favorite albums from my favorite artist.

don't buy
