Aretha Franklin - I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You (1967)

Aretha Louise Franklin (March 25, 1942 – August 16, 2018) was an American singer and songwriter. She began her career as a child singing gospel at New Bethel Baptist Church in Detroit, where her father, C. L. Franklin, was minister. In 1960, at the age of 18, she embarked on a secular career, recording for Columbia Records but achieving only modest success. After signing to Atlantic Records in 1967, Franklin achieved commercial acclaim and success with songs such as "Respect", "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman", "Spanish Harlem" and "Think".
By the end of the 1960s she was being called "The Queen of Soul".(Wiki)

Probably the best Soul album ever released. Her first for Atlantic Records. - RIP Aretha - Gus

Many, many thanks, Gus. I'm listening to her music as I write this and am downloading this, rather than dig through my CDs, so I can just add it to the playlist. That voice, that woman, that soul... we were more than lucky to live during her recording career. Definitely much, much more than a little R.E.S.P.E.C.T. is due.

The first album ever bought was a collection named Doctor Feelgood, approx 1967 ... I was 14 years old, practically Aretha IS my musical imprinting, even now I'm crying while I'm writing.
