Rare & Unreleased Recordings From The Golden Reign Of The Queen

Rare & Unreleased Recordings From The Golden Reign Of The Queen by Aretha Franklin
Released: Oct 2007
Label: Rhino Atlantic
Aretha's bluesy soul has always sounded best when it's a little rough around the edges, so this collection of demos, outtakes and b-sides from 1967 to 1973 is a gem. The piano warbles off key, and Aretha coughs and needs a second take, but once "Sweet Bitter Love" gets off the ground it's a study in sweltering melancholy. The droopy Motown gospel of "The Letter" is equally great and should be required listening for anyone who's ever loved from a distance
