Aretha Franklin - Aretha Live At Fillmore West (Vinyl)
2003, 180g vinyl reissue.
This 1971 Aretha Franklin album was as seminal a soul breakthrough as Albert King's visit to the Fillmore West had been for blues. It finally cemented her status beyond soul audiences as both a recording and live attraction, and it matched her with the rhythm section of King Curtis and the Kingpens. Franklin mixed pop, rock, and soul throughout the three nights, including Stephen Stills' "Love the One You're With," and Bread's "Make It with You," and the Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby" and her own songs (Ray Charles came out of the audience for a spirited duet on one cut). Features photos from the concert and new liner notes by Down Beat contributor Mitch Myers.
