The Rance Allen Group is a gospel music group formed in Monroe, Michigan, and based in Toledo, Ohio. The group's incorporation of rock and soul into traditional gospel music prefigures the crossover success of such artists as Amy Grant, Andrae Crouch, and The Winans
The Rance Allen group were one of the pioneers of the gospel/soul crossover. Their influence on the gospel world is massive, especially on the next generation of gospel to come out of their native Detroit, the Clark Sisters, the Winans and others. As such when Be Be Winans topped the pop charts with Eternal (as he did a couple of years back), or appears with house producers Masters At Work, as he has on this years monster floor-filler Lean On Me, Rance Allen’s presence is being felt.

A new version of Last. The Rance Allen Group. The Best Of The Rance Allen Group. Overview (current section).
The Rance Allen Group 01-01-1988. Total duration:41 min. 01. Ain't No Need Of Crying. 02. Just My Imagination (Just My Salvation). 03. There's Gonna Be A Showdown. 04. That Will Be Good Enough For Me. Rance Allen. 05. Hot Line To Jesus. 06. Gonna Make It Alright. The Rance Allen Group
This hits package covers the group's successful run in the '70s, spotlighting Allen's incredibly flexible and powerful voice (one listens to cuts like "Ain't No Need of Crying" and "Gonna Make It Alright" and it's easy to figure out where Prince picked up his misty falsetto from). This spirited collection makes Allen's love of the music plain and offers a fine introduction to both his work and to the "new," yet (historically speaking) ancient mix of religious and secular black music.
