Sweet Passion is the twenty-fifth studio album by American singer Aretha Franklin, Released on May 19, 1977 by Atlantic Records. Following a brief resurgence in Aretha's sales with the Gold-certified success of her 1976 soundtrack album, Sparkle, Aretha paired up with famed Motown producerLamont Dozier, to produce Sweet Passion. It was, however, a commercial and critical failure. The album's one single, "Break It To Me Gently", peaked at #85 and dropped off the Hot 100 after only two weeks, although it topped the Billboard R&B Singles Chart. This recording was released on compact disc in Europe in 2008.
