Aretha Franklin

Aretha Franklin - Soul '69

Aretha Franklin - Soul '69
Originally released in Jan. 1969, this is Aretha's 6th album for Atlantic and one of her most under-rated '60s albums. Despite the title, it's a brilliant jazz-flavored set (with sophisticated brass arrangements and cool horn playing) featuring "Today I Sing The Blues" & "Gentle On My Mind," plus passionate covers of The Miracles' "Tracks Of My Tears" and Sam Cooke's "Bring It On Home To Me". Aretha's backed by jazzmen Kenny Burrell, Ron Carter, David Newman & Joe Zawinul, plus the amazing grooves of the legendary Muscle Shoals rhythm section. Contains new liner notes by MC5 manager, poet and music historian John Sinclair. (180 gram HQ vinyl reissue in gatefold sleeve)
