Although none of the five LPs Houston Person recorded for Prestige prior to Goodness! had come close to being a hit, Bob Weinstock stuck with him, believing that the natural soulfulness in Person's playing would eventually find an audience. Goodness! turned out to be a smash hit, vindicating Weinstock's judgment and launching Person as an international star.
Person came out of the organ group tradition and for many years utilized that sound for his own bands. This hugely successful album perhaps best exemplifies his Sixties/early Seventies style.
