14 years old. You have got to be kidding. I cannot believe that Aretha had this kind of intensity at 14 years old. My god has she always been a star or what. Even with this primitive recording you can experience the sheer power that is ARETHA! She is truly touched by God. This work rivals anything that Aretha has ever done for sheer passion and artistry.


For those of you who are only familiar with Aretha's soul music output, you are in for a real treat with "Aretha Gospel." Even those who have heard Aretha's gospel outings such as the two-LP "Amazing Grace" from the 1970s will love this brief but explosive LP based on recordings made in her father C.L. Franklin's church in the 1950s.

Others can confirm this, but these recordings were originally made circa 1956 for the Battle and Chess/Checker labels. "Never Grow Old" was released as a Checker 78 and 45 in 1956. At that time, Aretha was billed as "daughter of Rev. C.L. Franklin." "Precious Lord" was issued on a Checker 45 in the early 1960s, after John Hammond and Columbia Records introduced Aretha to the jazz vocalist-loving public.

Listen to Aretha sing "Precious Lord" or "Never Grow Old" on "Aretha Gospel." Listen to the congregation respond. Listen to the recording mics stretched to their audio limit with her powerful voice. Then remind yourself that this is a 14-YEAR OLD young lady singing. Then pinch yourself to make sure you're not dreaming -- and believe me, you're not! This is teenage Aretha giving the world advance notice of her remarkable talent, all the while praising God in her father's church.



Want specifics..."The Day Is Past And Gone" is what set my friend's mother on fire and is my favorite. I don't think you'll find it on any other LP. "Yield not to Temptation" and "There is Fountain Filled With Blood" are incredible, also..
