Aretha Franklin: Queen Aretha #2 – The Golden Years

David Nathan, Blues & Soul, 16 August 1977

"THERE WAS a great zest, love and feeling for the music," states Jerry Wexler and when pressed further on the subject of that first session on January 24th, 1967 at Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, he says: "Yes, I knew what we had on our hands with Aretha after that. I knew then that we were dealing with a superstar."
