Current track


Rediscovered: Aretha Franklin. Soul ’69.

Written by on August 24, 2018

It is difficult to pin down just one great Aretha album, but this one is my favorite. It is a classic soul album. The depth and versatility of her voice is excellently reflected through the ballads, she sings so believeably, carried by an orchestra rich and mellow at the same time. My favorite track is “River’s Invitation”, written by Percy Mayfield. Check it out.
