Young, Gifted and Black is a remarkable album, finding Aretha Franklin at the peak of her powers. It appeared chronologically between her two groundbreaking live records – Live at Fillmore West, which celebrated her acceptance by the rock audience, and Amazing Grace, which placed her at the heart of her gospel roots. On Young, Gifted and Black she acts as a conduit for all her influences, and produces a mesmeric, frequently rapturous work.

Speak your name And I'll feel a thrill. You said I do, And I said I will. I tell you that I'll stay true, And give you just a little time. Wait on me baby, I want you to be all mine. Since you've been gone, baby (why'd you do it? why'd you have to do it?)
Young, Gifted And Black. The hype on the new Aretha Franklin album would have us believe that this is her best work since the Sixties, when a string of now-classic albums with Jerry Wexler and Arif Mardin established her as the definitive female soul singer. Even the press bio that accompanied Who’s Zoomin’ Who? claims the record has been hailed by critics as one of the true landmark albums of career.
