ARETHA FRANKLIN

Amazing Grace: The Complete Recordings

Released: 5th Apr 2019

£88.99


Amazing Grace – Aretha Franklin’s biggest-selling album and the best-selling live gospel album of all time – is enjoying a revival nearly 50 years after it was recorded.

It follows the debut late last year of the long-awaited documentary about the making of that legendary double live album, which opened to rave reviews. Among the many signature moments that make up Franklin’s remarkable career, these performances clearly stand out as some of her finest work. They were recorded over two nights as the singer performed church standards like “Precious Memories,” “What A Friend We Have In Jesus” and “How I Got Over,” the latter written by gospel legend Clara Ward, who was listening in the audience. Released on June 1, 1972, Amazing Grace would go on to sell more than two million copies in the in U.S. alone. It was not only the best-selling album of Franklin’s career, but it still also holds the record as the best-selling live gospel album of all time. In addition, the album also earned Franklin a Grammy award, her first for Best Soul Gospel Performance.
