A properly chastised BRP has a big case of the "oops." I neglected to post anything about the recent death of Aretha Franklin, one of the biggest soul/rock talents to have emerged in the 60s. I apologize: it was a bad oversight.
That being said, it's never too late for second chances. Rather than go with Respect, I'm going to go with a shout-out cover from one of the best blues-rock bands out there right now, Tedeschi Trucks Band. Here's a fantastic cover of I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You):
Kudos to Jonathan for bringing this cover to my attention.
And with that, we'll move on. Aretha, you were fantastic. Rest in peace.
My name is Bill, and I live in the greater Philadelphia area. I love music, and I have a lot of opinions. This site is primarily focused on music, but sometimes I get off track. I hope you enjoy.
