Aretha Franklin - Amazing Grace Live 1972

Marie Jose lately heard on the radio a live version by Aretha Franklin of the famous Liverpool song You never walk alone.
I hope I can please her today with 110 minutes Aretha singing live gospel songs :

Ron Wynn from All Music Guide wrote about this album.
Aretha Franklin disproved the notion that once you leave the church, you can't go back. She returned in triumph on this 1972 double album, making what might be her greatest release ever in any style. Her voice was chilling, making it seem as if God and the angels were conducting a service alongside Franklin, Rev. James Cleveland, the Southern California Community Choir, and everyone else in attendance. Her versions of How I Got Over and You've Got a Friend are legendary.

Note : full screen window gives you the best view of the comments !

'Clickable' links are for you downloaders soooo convienent but the disadvantage is they don't seem to 'last' long.
The Blogger gets a lot of comments 'please re-up'...... Other, more appropriate/interesting comments, they sadly don't get... :(
So you will have to do a little work to get the link.
This seems, in my opinion, the best deal between 'protecting' my links and the least effort for you.

Link :
Of course you understand to replace in r#pidsh#re twice the # in an a otherwise you don't have a 'valid' link !!
Paste this valid link in your browser-url and hit RETURN. You can also copy/paste the link into your 'downloadmanager'.

Pass to extract the file : 080702
The file is a small 100MB, 'cause the songs are only in low bitrate 128kbits.
Please donnut give a nasty comment about that : check 'My opinion about bitrates' on 2008_jan_25.

The next depends, amongst other things, on your security options in your browser and by so the ability to copy/paste the link.

When you see this in Google or Yahoo cache or by my Blog's search function read first the RED instructions at the top left of my Blog !

Great album! Thanks Jean!
I have never heard Aretha sing gospel music, but have realized that her voice and style are most suited to such singing. I recall her rouzing performance in "The Blues Brothers" and while the song was not religious in nature, its impact was fervent, like the tunes on this recording, "Amazing Grace."

Thanks for the exposure.
I have long time been a lover of soul gospel. While I was on base in Youngsfield in 1976, I had my first dose of Andrae Crouch and the Disciples and bought every one of his early albums, but the other night when I listened to this album I realized there is a soul gospel, that is far more intense than anything Andrae could ever muster. This is Gospel, like nothing I have ever heard in my life. God bless you Jean!
