Difficulty Level: Advanced Genre: Classic Rock, Soul

What can one say about this absolute classic, this pinnacle of soul music that hit the top of the charts for 11 weeks in 1967? Aretha Franklin was raised in Detroit, her dad a famous preacher. Aretha was singing gospel music from the age of nine, and that experience and influence shines through. A master blend of black soul music and southern session work, “Respect” belongs in anyone’s Top 10.
