  1. I really like her version. There was a quip made about another singer (possibly Billie Holiday) that she could sing the phone book and it would be interesting. I'm sure it could apply to Aretha as well.

    1. Pretty much so, especially in her first few years with Atlantic; she did lots of covers of other singers' songs and always made them sound fresh and original.

  2. Kind of using a ringer here. Aretha 1968? What's not to like?
    Great stuff.
