This 1969 b-side merging 2 Johnny Ace songs is a masterclass in Aretha’s vocal control and agility.
Aretha takes on a Nancy Wilson hit, and for once largely leaves the arrangement as is.
Aretha returned in 2003 with this breezy cut that epitomizes a warm, sunny day… with a touch of melancholy.
Van McCoy composed this understated ballad from Aretha’s 1975 album “You”
Aretha reaches back to her youth, and brings her sisters, and Willa Ward, along for the ride.
One of an album’s worth of material recorded in 1963 that wasn’t first released until 2002.
