“For five long years, I thought you were my man/’Till I found out, I’m just a link in your chain.” So begins Aretha Franklin’s fifth hit of 1967, a sequence that began with “Respect” hitting the top in June, and ending with “Chain Of Fools” being released in December. Some call “Respect” the all time soul hit, but surely “Chain Of Fools” can’t be too far behind on the list. Roger Hawkins is drumming.
