This album, for some reason, never even had any singles that hit it to number 1 on the popular charts. The album never hit number 1. That is what makes it better than ever! It is usually the less commercial material that are killers. This album proves so. This is the album that contains "Think", which is the one of the earliest songs Aretha wrote in her early stardom. I still label it her best. In a why, it is wicked! The two songs, "I Can't See Myself Leaving You" and "I'll Take What I Want" seem to be always forgotten by many, but they are gems in plain English. Those also prove see is the Queen of Soul, not only then, but also now. Also note, even though Jerry Wexler produced the album, Arif Mardin was a major arranger. When you purchase the album, you want be surprised. He really is the king of the R&B world when it comes to putting music together.

Aretha Franklin - I Say A Little Prayer

The Cliff Richard Show" 1970.

The Aretha/backup singers juxtaposition seems to perfectly encapsulate that transitional moment in history.
The Queen and her "Sweet Inspirations" Carolyn, Erma (Franklin) and Cissy Houston man how they merge as one vocal unit on this gem.

Aretha Franklin - Think


Most probably this tune is Aretha's fav....
Aretha is beyond fantastic
