A wonderful showcase of Aretha Franklin’s sublime talents in this film of a 1972 gospel concert in Los Angeles. In 1972 Aretha Franklin went back to her roots to perform a gospel concert in Los Angeles. Legal squabbles and issues with sound quality led to the film of the concert being shelved for 46 years, before this welcome release of a remastered version following the Queen of Soul’s death last year. It’s a no-frills film, shot in a small and modest church, without much in the way of narrative structure – it’s purely about the power of her voice; but you quickly discover you don’t need anything else. A must-see.
