Background: Released in 1972, Young, Gifted, and Black was the eighteenth studio album by Aretha Franklin.

The album reached #11 on the U.S. album charts. gave Young, Gifted, and Black a 4 1/2 star review:

It’s nearly impossible to single out any of Aretha Franklin’s early-’70s albums for Atlantic as being her best, particularly given the breadth of her output during this era. In terms of albums rather than singles, it’s probably her strongest era, and if you count live albums like Amazing Grace, choosing a standout or a favorite record isn’t any easier. Yet of this stunning era, Young, Gifted and Black certainly ranks highly among her studio efforts, with many arguing that it may be her greatest. … So even if this isn’t the greatest Aretha Franklin album of the early ’70s, it’s certainly a contender, the sort of album that you can’t go wrong with.
