Aretha Franklin
« on: August 17, 2018, 08:08:54 AM »
As we have lost one more great talent, I was fortunate enough to hear the Queen of Soul cover "Long and winding road" in a way Paul and the Beatles probably never imagined. I had just missed her cover of "walk on By" unfortunately. So I'm looking on youtube now and imagining how it would have sounded.

Her vocal range was all the more sweet and nostalgic heard through a 1965 "last of all tubes" Zenith Console as I boxed in the speakers. Being one of the last all-Beatles songs, it was always bittersweet anyway, yesterday it was more so :'(
