$14.95

Details

“Aaron Cohen's study of Amazing Grace is rich in intelligence, scholarship, and sensitivity. A great musical work has been put in context. Praise Aretha! Praise God!"” –  David Ritz, co-author of Aretha: From These Roots and Brother Ray: Ray Charles

“When the church's prodigal daughter returned, she blessed it with the biggest-selling gospel album in history. Aaron Cohen captures the cultural and political implications of this astonishing event. He also pays homage to the musicians and arrangers who supported Lady Soul. A joyful noise, indeed.” –  Anthony Heilbutgospel, producer and author of The Gospel Sound: Good News In Bad Times

“Aaron Cohen...writes with an ardour and understanding equal to his subject's performance, skillfully tracing gospel music and Aretha's evolution-including a re-appraisal of her Columbia years-the social, political and personal ramifications of Amazing Grace and, importantly, just what it was like to hear Aretha sing gospel in her prime."
