Aretha's Critically Acclaimed Classic!
Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 75/500!
Franklin's 14th studio album, released in 1968, contains "Chain Of Fools" & "Since You've Been Gone (Sweet Sweet Baby)". The album was her second R&B chart-topper.
She is known the world over by her first name and as the undisputed, reigning "Queen Of Soul," Aretha Franklin is peerless.
Beyond the timeless classic hits such as "Respect," "A Natural Woman," "Chain Of Fools," "Think," "Daydreaming" and "Freeway Of Love" among the dozens of chart-topping records that have established her as a cultural icon, Aretha Franklin's catalog of over forty albums in forms listeners of her unmatched, unparalleled artistry as an interpreter of song, bar none. Her elevation to 'royal' status is indeed not just a function of her hit making ability but of her unique inventiveness as a musician who fuses art and soul seamlessly.
