"This is Aretha's first album released in the 1970's. Then, she was not any longer as hot as her early days at Atlantic in 1967-1968 but she still managed to get TOP 20 albums and singles now and then.
THIS GIRL'S IN LOVE WITH YOU, released in January 1970, was mainly composed of remakes of other artists's hits: SON OF A PREACHER MAN, LET IT BE, DARK END,...
In my opinion, the best tracks here are the hit single from the album (CALL ME) and the superb ELEANOR RIGBY, which sounds even better than the original, with its R&B arrangement.
It's not Aretha's best work but it's close. Not enough original material maybe. The LET IT BE remake is awful, SON OF A PREACHER MAN is not as good as the original but all these songs together with a few good songs and the two great tracks make this collection a rather good one."
Moving assuredly into the 70s

"Firstly, with March 25th looming, let's all wish the queen a very happy 62nd birthday. Certainly within the baby-boomer generation she was and still is the greatest female singer to arrive. We perhaps might allow Streisand to stand at Aretha's right hand, but all others are at least a step behind. You don't have to take my word for it; look among her work offered here on Amazon and just start counting how many of her albums average a full, filled-in five stars.Aretha and her fans beheld a new decade as this one, originally Atlantic LP 8248 was released on January 15, 1970. It carried many sides that had already gained popularity as singles in '69: "The Weight" (Atlantic 2603 in February), "Share Your Love With Me" (Atlantic 2650 in July) and "Eleanor Rigby" & "It Ain't Fair" (Atlantic 2683 in October). Six days after the album came out "Call Me" & "Son Of A Preacher Man" made the two sides of another single (Atlantic 2706). Aretha had had first dibs on "Preacher Man" and initially took a pass, but then Dusty Springfield grabbed it and took her version into the Pop top 10 in late 1968; Aretha changed her mind about that one. Both versions are quite enjoyable. Later, in July, "Let It Be" would ride the b-side of "Don't Play That Song" (Atlantic 2751).Speaking of remakes, with the title song, Aretha does again here what she managed with another song that had been a Dionne Warwick hit first, just like "I Say A Little Prayer." In each instance, she so magically recast the songs that I think if she'd sung them in a different language, you'd have difficulty convincing someone (even yourself!) that they were the same songs. Only the lyrics are your clue. I've read that when Aretha takes someone else's song, they can't take it back again. I don't know that I agree to the point of saying Warwick's versions of the two songs were no longer enjoyable - they are. But I do agree to the point that when Aretha recasts any song for her own interpretation, that version then becomes uniquely hers, and no one else can do it like her. If that's not genius, folks, what is?"
One of my Aretha Favorites

"If I had to pick my top 3 favorite Aretha albums, This Girl's in Love with You would be one of them (the other two are I Never Loved a Man and Soul 69). Personnally, I found this album more enjoyable than what what was to be her next album, Spirit in the Dark. Her version of "Son of a Preacher Man" is a classic example of Aretha's talent of taking someone else's material (in this case Dusty Springfield) and revolutionizing the sound. The other tracks of the album grew on me, such as the Aretha classic, "Call Me". Her version of "Sit Down and Cry" is both sexy, subtle and a gut-bucket of emotion, reminiscent of the raw emotion in "I Never Loved a Man." Her brilliant, near-transcendent cover of "Dark End of the Street" is for me the highlight. The concept of the song is beautiful and Aretha interprets it lyrically and, not uncharacteristically, with wonderful power"
