Released in 1967, Aretha’s first album for Atlantic is something of a landmark. Gone is the overproduction, gone are the sappy arrangements and gone is the MOR-slickness of her Columbia material. Recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, featuring Rick Hall’s ultra funky FAME rhtyhm section, this is the LP that truly kickstarted the incredible career of Aretha Franklin, or as she was soon to be dubbed, ‘Miss Re’, ‘Lady Soul’ and, naturally, the crowned Queen of the entire genre. Respect probably is the greatest album-opener in the history of popular music. Next, she gives her raw spin on Ray Charles’ Drown in My Own Tears, after which the mammoth I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Loved You), with its hypnotizing, bluesy beat and terrific vocal, further explores the inner, outer and unknown realms of Pure Soul.
