Electric concert - Amazing Grace review by ER

Spoiler Alert
24/06/2019

Vital viewing for gospel and soul lovers - also time travellers that would love to revisit the early 1970s - just to see the fashions and what regular folk were wearing and saying back then. The body of Amazing Grace is an belated assembly of material from a live recording of a gospel concert from January 1972 in Watts. It's dynamic... > An utterly immersive experience which is as close as you can get to hitching a ride in the time machine. The camera affords you a front row seat to an awe-inspiring performance - there's more than one moment that gave me goosebumps. Another brought a tear to my eye. A thing of beauty and at a slender 80 minutes you can make time for one of the best films of 2019. Albeit one that turned up 47 years late. Better late than never at all.

Unforgettable.

Wopw! What a voice! - Amazing Grace review by TE

Spoiler Alert
30/09/2019

Sheer brilliance: the music, the voice, the backdrop, the heart and the soul.

This is a wonderful recording of Aretha in full flow. I'd love to have seen her perform live, but this is the next best thing.
