Aretha Franklin at Fillmore West

Jonh Ingham, Creem, June 1971

BILL GRAHAM'S Fillmore West. At one end is a fairly large stage, the sides littered with sound equipment. Behind it hangs the light show scrim. In front of the stage, just for tonight, is a runway. Above, and scattered across the ceiling, are boxes that light up with the word "ARETHA."
