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.

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.

"Sock it to me! Sock it to me! Sock it to me!" That famous refrain in a groovy take on Otis Redding's "Respect" opens Aretha Franklin's March 1967 Atlantic Records debut album "I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You" - and by the time you make it to Track 2 - a gorgeously arranged cover of Ray Charles' 1956 Atlantic R&B weeper "Drown In My Own Tears" - those accolades of 'Best Soul Album Ever Released' start to make total sense.

Even now in sunny June 2016 - Aretha's first album for the mighty Atlantic Records is an awesome thing to behold - so many great tracks, so much feel and it's damn moving too (I rate her own "Baby, Baby, Baby" as one of 'the' best songs on the iconic record). Let's get to Soul Music's real deal...

UK, Europe and USA released June 1995 - "I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You" by ARETHA FRANKLIN on Rhino/Atlantic Remasters 8122-719340-2 (Barcode 081227193423, UK and Europe issue) is a CD Remaster of the 1967 11-track album with four Bonus Tracks and plays out as follows (41:26 minutes):

2. Drown In My Own Tears (Danny Glover song, Ray Charles cover)
3. I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You) (Ronny Shannon song)
4. Soul Serenade (Curtis Ousley/Luther Dixon song)
5. Don't Let Me Lose This Dream (Aretha Franklin/Ted White song)

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.

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 ...
