In January 1972, Aretha Franklin joined with the choir at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Watts, and the live gospel album that resulted, "Amazing Grace," became her personal best-seller as well as the genre's. The documentary chronicle that Sydney Pollack shot of the performance was tied up in litigation for over 40 years--until now--and this restored presentation provides the Queen of Soul at the height of her powers.
