The Rationals: 'Respect' Makes a Hit for Ann Arbor Quartet

Loraine Alterman, Detroit Free Press, 9 September 1966

PUT TOGETHER an Otis Redding tune, 'Respect', and four talented guys from Ann Arbor called The Rationals and you've got a big hit record. So big, in fact, that in the three weeks it's been out, it has sold about 10,000 copies in this area. That's a lot of records.

Total word count of piece: 299
