Live 1972 performance on 4LP set!
On 180-gram vinyl for the first time!
On LP for the first time, Amazing Grace is the biggest selling release of Aretha Franklin's 50+ year career and the bestselling gospel album of all time. The Gospel masterpiece album took Franklin back to her roots in the church.
This collection contains gospel tunes performed by Aretha Franklin at Los Angeles' New Temple Baptist Missionary Church on January 13 & 14, 1972.
"Franklin's voice has a previously unheard vulnerability to it on Amazing Grace. She does not speak after being introduced by her mentor, Reverend James Cleveland, the former minister of music for her dad's parish, who directed the album's choir. When she does finally opens her mouth for a reworking of Marvin Gaye's "Wholy Holy," she does not hold back; you can hear the gasps. Franklin raises her voice as she declares, "People, we've got to come together. Because we need the strength the power, all the feeling." The crowd — which included Mick Jagger and Franklin's hero Clara Ward — goes nuts, realizing the moment they're settling into." — Rollingstone.com, August 22, 2018
