As of 2010 it is also the biggest selling disc of Aretha’s entire fifty year recording career. The double album was recorded ‘Live’ at the New Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Los Angeles during January of 1972.

1.Golden Gate Gospel Train (1937)
2.Rock My Soul (1938)
4.Ride Up In The Chariot (1941)
