In the movie business, sequels are a funny thing, rarely living up to the promise of the first movie. Likewise, in music, a cover is tricky, because everyone has the first rendition to compare it to. Aretha Franklin’s treatment of the Burt Bachrach song “I Say A Little Prayer” simply blows away the earlier Dionne Warwick version. Roger Hawkins is doing the light funky drumming.
