Aretha Franklin: Young, Gifted & Black (Atlantic)

Roy Carr, New Musical Express, 25 March 1972

THIS NEW album once again illustrates Aretha as one of the finest interpretive artists of this era and the diverse material — beautifully arranged by Arif Mardin and Tom Dowd — acts as a perfect showcase.
