EDITORS’ NOTES

If you’re only planning on listening to one gospel record, make it this. Released after almost two decades of performance, Amazing Grace revisits Tennessee native Aretha Franklin’s musical roots in full, empowering splendor. And this opus isn't just a celebration; it's a revelation. Here Franklin liberates her vocals—tricking out traditional gospel standards with secular grooves and bluesy rock flourishes, as on the uptempo “How I Got Over”—and leads a swelling choir on “What a Friend We Have in Jesus.”

A truly unique and spirit-filled masterpiece

My mother had the double album in vinyl. She would put it on and let it play on Sunday mornings as we prepared for Sunday School and Church. She would also play it when she was feeling down. I thank God for blessing us through this recording. This is simply an old fashion Baptist musical. The power can be felt when Ms. Franklin sings "How I Got Over." "Mary Don't You Weep," reminds us that God is on our side always. Pure and simple, this recording is my favorite recording of all. Simply put it on, kick back and enjoy.

Amazing Grace

I have purchased this album about 12 times but I play it when I have company and after they leave, my cd's leave also. This by far is the very best of Ms Aretha Franklin! I will always have it in my library.
