CD Reviews

A Desert Island Disc....The Aretha for non-Aretha fans..

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'm amazed how anyone can trash this one, but hey it's a free country. This is a classic album in my opinion. Of course, I'm a fan of Dinah Washington, Sinatra, Nancy Wilson, the early Della Reese et al, not a major fan of the "queen of soul" that Aretha become.

So if you like bluesy ballads sung with force and vibrance(not screeching) you should add this to your collection. Each cut is a gem. To correct an earlier post, the song that she's covering of

Sinatra song, "Without the One You Love." When she sings, "those picnics at the beach"" is actually called "Only the Lonely", written by Sammy Cahn & Jimmy Van Heusen, rarely covered by anyone else.."
