The Queen of Soul delivers a truly stunning album that is surely her finest and one of the greatest pieces of Soul music ever made. Aretha's vocals on this album are breathtaking and incredibly moving. From the powerful black Soul power of 'Young, Gifted and Black', and the sweet soulful funk of 'Rock Steady' right through to the stunning and mesmerising closing track that lifts your spirits through the sky 'Border Song (Holy Moses). This is essential and timeless Soul music.
