Aretha Franklin is often called ‘The Queen Of Soul’, and with good reason. Her huge hit ‘Respect’ generated many covers, and still sounds relevant today. However, it was another of her hits that first drew me to her, and it is that song I am featuring in this series. This was released in 1968, and was a cover of a Dionne Warwick single, written by Bacharach and David.. As much as I liked Dionne then, I preferred Aretha’s version.
