    Of all the songs I expected to become ear worms, this was not one of them - however, I have become obsessed with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra version of it. Madness that this album was out for a year and I wasn't aware of it.

    As they said, when she sat down and played that piano, the magic came out.

    It really is. Should've charted higher than it did. I think it was like #51 on the R&B chart.

    People Get Ready has become one of my favourite Aretha songs over the last week, the vocals in it are just stunning and you really see the depth of her voice and its range, in all of its glory - it's really quite something.



    What she does from 02:40 onwards with her upper chest is amazing.

    Aretha on the cover of Rolling Stone (for the second time; AFAIK, she was NEVER on the cover during hers and the magazine's heyday despite the fact she's listed as the #1 greatest singer on their list; the last bit is why she graced the cover the last time and this was after she had her first cancer surgery):

    Aretha Franklin’s 1972 Gospel Triumph ‘Amazing Grace’ Coming to Vinyl

    In January 1972, Aretha Franklin went back to where it all started. Over two days at Los Angeles’ New Temple Missionary Baptist Church, she gave audiences – which included Clara Ward and Mick Jagger – a glimpse of what she learned in the Detroit church of her father, Reverend C.L. Franklin. The resulting live album, Amazing Grace, sold 2 million copies and won a Grammy. Executive producer Jerry Wexler, himself an atheist, said the album “relates to religious music in much the same way Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel relates to religious art. In terms of scope and depth, little else compares to its greatness.”

    Still, the project remains elusive. Amazing Grace was filmed for a planned documentary, but never came out (Rolling Stone chronicled its 46-year-journey to the screen last fall). It finally premiered last November in New York to excellent reviews. On Tuesday, Rhino announced the release of Amazing Grace: The Complete Recordings, a four-LP set available on vinyl for the first time. (The original Amazing Grace album was just 13 songs, but was expanded on CD in 1999). The vinyl, out March 22nd, will include four 180-gram LPs.
