.Originally released in 1972, Amazing Grace hit the Billboard Top Ten as soon as it was released and became one of the best-selling gospel records of all time and, of course, one of the most successful albums by the Queen Of Soul. It has now sold over 2 million copies in the US alone and the artist has now received 18 Grammy Awards, unbelievable!

The album was recorded in a large Baptist church, with an overly enthusiastic, rapturous crowd in the pews and a full, funky band, plus the Southern California Community Choir, led by Aretha's mentor, the Reverend James Cleveland. Her voice is melodious and full of the most intense emotions, while being clear and controlled - like a direct herald of the Holy Spirit.
Aretha's father, the brilliant preacher Reverend CL Franklin, gives a short speech in which he proudly announces, among other things, that she was always a diligent churchgoer.

Highlights include the wonderful "Wholy Holy," a touching 11-minute version of "Amazing Grace," and Inez Andrews' stirring song "Mary, Don't You Weep." This recording was so much more than a return to your roots when it was released, it's an inspired gospel soul masterpiece!
