Opaque mustard yellow vinyl LP
The Queen of Soul's empowering Grammy-winning album featuring "Rock Steady," "Day Dreaming," "Young, Gifted and Black" and more!
Like its predecessor, Spirit in the Dark, 1972's Young, Gifted and Black found Aretha moving with soul music's elite into a progressive phase that opened up the emotional content of her work even further. All the King's Horses mourns the death of her first marriage, while Day Dreaming and A Brand New Me point toward what we'd now call "healing." Two stabs at social comment, Nina Simone's title cut and, intriguingly, Elton John's Border Song, round out this impressive portrait.
