Almighty Fire is the twenty-sixth studio album by American singer Aretha Franklin, Released on April 13, 1978 by Atlantic Records. By the time of this album's release, Aretha Franklin was going through a recording drought, due in part to the widespread popularity of disco. Aretha was reunited with Curtis Mayfield after their earlier success together with the "Sparkle" soundtrack. However, this album has long been regarded as one of Aretha's poorest recordings, selling only about 100,000 copies. It peaked at a dismal #83 on the Billboard album chart. The title single peaked at #12 on the Billboard R&B Singles Chart and the follow-up single, "More Than Just A Joy", peaked at #51. The album was released on compact disc in Europe in 2008.
