Like most, I respected her talent over the years myself. I never really bought Aretha’s studio albums but the only music album I own of hers is just the greatest hits album you see pictured above which I listened to a lot. I’m familiar with her famous hits and all the covers she has done over the years.
Aretha’s music was pretty amazing stuff, though especially her music back in the 60’s. Her stuff back then was powerful. She had the pipes back when she was younger. Even though she was a liberal and a Democrat and she sang for the Obamas a few times, my respect for Aretha is immense ’cause she’s a music legend and icon. They don’t call her the “Queen of Soul” for no reason. I never really listened to her new stuff much but her old stuff was pretty sick.
Sad loss in the music world. I loved Aretha too. I listened to that Greatest Hits album above a lot in the past and it was good to listen to it again today. I’m going to have to listen to more Aretha now.
