Aretha Franklin – The Queen of Soul – we loved her still do. And this was the first record I bought by her.
Her entire catalogue is marvellous, that voice!
She appeared in the Blues Brothers Film doing a live dance routine to Respect.
Quite a lot of her 45’s were played at the Twisted Wheel but many more at the Blue Note Club in Manchester, mostly by myself as I was the DJ (Dave P).
Aretha toured on Gospel shows with Sam Cook, some say she was in love with him.
She had two fantastic Soul Diva Sisters.
