Description
Arguably the greatest soul album of all time, Franklin's jaw-dropping Atlantic debut unleashed her staggering talent in all of its many facets, from the passion of "Baby, Baby, Baby" to the buoyant lyricism of "Don't Let Me Lose This Dream."

"Franklin follows the radioactive hit 'Respect' with a steady, remarkably poised version of Ray Charles's 'Drown in My Own Tears,' then personalizes the confessional title track and several Southern soul standbys ('Do Right Woman, Do Right Man') before closing with Sam Cooke's prayerful 'A Change Is Gonna Come.' All of it vibrates with the heady intensity Franklin summons in the opening seconds of 'Respect’.”—Tom Moon, 1,000 Recordings to Hear Before You Die

"The place where gospel music collided with R&B and rock & roll and became soul…. The album's title hit [was] a slow fire of ferocious sexuality, while her storefront-church cover of Otis Redding's 'Respect' … became the marching song for the women's and civil-rights movements."—Rolling Stone, 100 Greatest Albums

“There are singers, then there is Aretha. She towers above the rest. Others are good, but Aretha is great. She’s my only sure-enough sister.”—Ray Charles
