When Aretha Franklin’s revelatory Southern soul collaborations with producer Jerry Wexler cooled in the early ’70s, she spent nearly a decade experimenting with different sounds. She remained a major presence on the Billboard R&B charts throughout the decade, but little she released had the same wide impact as her ’60s peak. Sparkle was an oasis in this period. It was Franklin’s only album to be certified gold between 1972, the year of her Nina Simone-inspired Young, Gifted and Black, and her Luther Vandross-helmed comeback, 1982’s Jump to It. With its shimmering girl-group sound and urban gospel tone, Sparkle marked a final, shining moment for classic soul just before disco, funk and quiet storm took over the R&B charts for good.

Aretha Franklin's career was in a down period in the mid-'70s when she collaborated with Curtis Mayfield to sing his compositions for the film Sparkle. The film proved a non-event, but for Franklin it marked a return to glory. Once again she was the Queen of Soul, doing the chilling, spectacular leaps, cries, whoops, and shouts that defined secularized gospel in the late '60s. The title cut was a sizable hit, while "Something He Can Feel" became an anthem.
