Dorothy Norwood is one of the legends of US gospel music, although she might not have the high profile of Shirley Caesar and Albertina Walker, she too used to sing in the Caravans way back when. A few years back Norwood could sing plenty of gospel's newcomers off the platform, her 1995 album "Shake The Devil Off was full of soulful, old time hollering. But the veteran's latest is a rather tame affair and might be evidence that her pipes are finally succumbing to the march of anno domi-ni. Talking of Albertina Walker, Dorothy's one time group boss is a guest on "So Good". But sadly even Albertina is dragged down into the general ordinariness. The backing choir are too ragged, the band is only middling, and the songs are a pretty samery bunch: only the old Clara Ward "Parking Up" shows any fire. Must do better Dorothy, otherwise it might just be time to retire gracefully.
