    Sister Rosetta Tharpe
    Bring Back Those Happy Days CD

    28 tracks gathering Sister Rosetta Tharpe's Greatest Hits and selected recordings from 1938 to 1957.
    Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2018, Sister Rosetta Tharpe popularised gospel music to a new level during the 1930s and 1940s.
    This essential overview of her career presents everything you would expect in religious fervour and meaningful lyrics, but because of her then unique style of guitar playing she had an appeal so great that it propelled her recordings into the emergent blues and R&B market.
    Sister Rosetta Tharpe's guitar playing influenced the likes of Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry and Little Richard.
    Includes Strange Things Happening Everyday which stormed to #2 on the Billboard 'Race' charts, one of the first gospel recordings to achieve that feat.
    Other important tracks in this collection include Down By The Riverside which the American Library of Congress registered in 2004 for its direct influence on early Rhythm & Blues music, aldong with Rock Me, That's All, This Train, Shout Sister Shout!, Didn't It Rain and many others.
