Sure, it’s easy to tell you that you need to buy this album. It’s Aretha Franklin’s best work (and just look at the list of musicians that helped record it!). It has both “Chain of Fools” and “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” on it. But more importantly, it cemented her at the top of the food chain for female soul singers. Has she ever been usurped from this position of power in the forty plus years since? I think not.
