Comment:

Church Aretha is pure Aretha — not Aretha aiming for the charts, but Aretha doing what’s come naturally since she was a girl in her father’s congregation. And if there’s such a thing as a healthy heart attack, “Precious Memories” will give you one. The kicked-back groove is seductive; Aretha is moaning low, and the additional voice of her mentor, the great James Cleveland, will turn the staunchest doubter into a testifying believer. “Oh Happy Day” assaults your head and heart while getting you high on hope; Aretha and Mavis Staples sweep you up until you’re standing next to them on the pulpit, swaying and shouting with the choir. Then it’s on to the ecstatic marriage of the spirit and flesh with Reverend Ray Charles, as their duet “Ain’t But the One” explodes the myth separating the sacred and sensual. But these three tracks have only warmed your spirit; to feel the flames of the raging fire, stand up to our complete list of the Gospel according to Aretha.
