Aretha Franklin: Hammersmith Odeon, London
John Abbey, Blues & Soul, 14 August 1970
WHEN THE second house of Aretha's only London date started half an hour late, it did at first appear a bad sign. However, since the opening section of the show features the Aretha Franklin Concert Orchestra and a talented but not outstanding trio of young ladies called the Sweethearts of Soul, it turned out not to be too bad.
