Good evening! Hi! Hello! How are y’all? Gonna ask you to do one thing for me tonight, that’s all…

There are times when I suspect that the entire purpose of the existence of the United States of America is to create the strange set of events that led to the career of Aretha Franklin. Now is one of those times.

I would also like to thank the Internet for letting me download the entirety of Don’t Fight The Feeling: The Complete Aretha Franklin Live at the Fillmore West 1971 which is out of print from Rhino Handmade and costs $250.

  1. I saw a clip of Aretha standing in for Pavarotti on an awards show years ago. She sang his song because he was a pansy and backed out literaly minutes before he was to perform. She sang it so beautifuly done that it made me tear up. I wish I had a copy of it.

  2. the first song i ever downloaded was “rock steady.”
    next time i get to visit 1967, i’m building a throne at the fillmore and staying seated for five years.

  3. ARETHA IS THE FUCKING BOMB. She is stupid awesome. She’s on a higher plane.
    Shit I haven’t mailed out my Soul Sistas CD yet. On the agenda for the weekend.
