On first listens i was a little disappointed as i'd recently been listening to a Raw Soul compilation i'd got free with a magazine and this album was not quite as upbeat in comparison.
In a few listens time though, i got it... and yes i got it really bad!
There is SO much soul in this record and she means it, she's felt the losing and the pain, unlike so many modern soul artists who's voices are pathetic in comparison.
The opener Respect, is instantly recognisable where she beats Otis (Redding) at his own song and adds her own bit to it too (the R-E-S-P-E-C-T!). The closer too is a cover of Sam Cooke's A Change is Gonna Come, which Otis also covered, however, Aretha's version just had so much more power and feeling than his, the opening "i was bo-or-or-orn by the river" and many other phrases within the song and so memorable for the amount of feeling packed into so few words.
In between these tracks are soulful gems of love and loss. My personal favourite has to be Don't Lose This Dream, it starts deceptively as a polite jazz inflected number but soon Aretha and her backing singers have reached the chorus and blown us away with their unique blend of soul/pop.
The album 'Aretha: Lady Soul' is often raved about but i think personally that this album far supersedes it. It sticks to the same genre throughout rather than flitting all over the place. Its one of those albums you love listening to and when its not on you long to hear it again.
From the opening to the closing note you'll be enthralled. Buy with confidence.

This is a stunning album. Aretha is amazing and her voice is simply sublime.
This album is full of classic soul tracks sung to perfection. I think each version is THE genre-defining version. I don't think you can help but be moved by Aretha's power, control and sheer soulfullness.
If you want to discover Aretha Franklin just buy this album. Simple.

this is totally wonderful stuff. there's power, there's soul, there's beauty. she never sounded better. the only thing you should be buying instead of this is the 'best of the atlantic years' box set. now there's a birthday present for someone you love...

If you care to look you will notice that EVERY review of this album , as i write this (June 2010) , awards it the maximum allowed , 5 stars all the way !!
That should tell you something . This was Aretha's first recording for Atlantic Records following a fairly long stint at Columbia . She recorded some decent stuff whilst with Columbia of course ( with a voice like this it would be hard not to) but really , this was her chance to break free from the shackles , let loose and show the world what she could really do . Believe me , the results did not disappoint .
Recording started at the legendary FAME studios in Muscle Shoals , Alabama (one of the most famous recording studios in musical history , run by Chips Moman) , producing two absolutely classic cuts I NEVER LOVED A MAN (THE WAY I LOVE YOU) and DO RIGHT WOMAN - DO RIGHT MAN .
Thereafter they moved up North to Atlantics studios in New York to complete the album . The lady was on the ball and in the mood when she recorded this let me tell you , every track is utterly brilliant and it's very hard to pick out favourites , they change every time i play the damn thing ! Just look at the track listing ; RESPECT , one of the all -time classics (miles better than Otis' pedestrian romp) , SAVE ME , a groovetastic wonder , A CHANGE IS GONNA COME , with it's heartfelt soaring intro , DR. FEELGOOD , so good they named a band after it !!!
Believe me , the rest of the album is just as good .
Where do you go after this though , well i'm afraid the answer is ....downhill. Not to write off the work which came after (there's a few albums from the 5 year period which followed this release which are almost as good ...

Words truly cannot describe what love and care has gone into this beautiful piece of wax.Aretha Franklins Atlantic debut has quietly been reissued in its original mono mix.The sound is incredible and blows you away.The labels have also been faithfully recreated by using the famous 1st pressing Orange/Aubergine labels.Even the sleeve is anti static.
Please buy this now and add to your collection.It is one of the greatest female sessions of all time.
Rhino you are to be commended on a sterling reissue.
Would love to see her classic Atlantic albums re-released in a special edition box set.

In my opinon this is Aretha at her very best. Sincerity, soul & her unique & brilliant vocal delivery just ooze from this album.Each track arouses a different emotion - Save Me gives me goose bumps!If you are considering buying this album JUST DO IT, you won't be disappointed.

Listening to this album is like being gently punched by an angel, part glory part gory. It was recorded at a time before soul was diluted by money and popular appeal and that shows in the production and the passion - that is sparse and plentiful respectivly.
Aretha Franklin was 25 when she recorded this album and everyone of those years shows as her voice displays both tenderness and pain in a breathless display of how soul should be sung; raw and unafraid . The opening rendition of Otis Redding's RESPECT is deceptively upbeat as the album, after this settles, down to a gospel swing that features horns and the occasional hammond.
The concluding track only proves that Aretha can cut it with the best of her male counterparts, her version of A Change is Gonna Come easily outshining Otis Redding's and coming close to Sam Cooke's original.
This album leaves you feeling, perhaps, that God has come a little closer.
