Aretha sits down at the piano and gets a new set of lyrics to take on Dinah Washington’s “Evil Gal Blues”
How Glad I Am
Aretha takes on a Nancy Wilson hit, and for once largely leaves the arrangement as is.
The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)
Aretha grooves by the fire in this 1964 take on the Christmas classic.
A Mother’s Love
Subtle, yet powerful, Aretha describes the love of a mother.
The quantity of songwriting Aretha Franklin’s first husband did is debatable, but he did compose this song, recorded in 1964 & released in 1967.
Leave it to Aretha to not only rearrange “Unforgettable”, but also end it with a rousing vocal show-out.
