A little Aretha in the a.m.

The woman can saang, no doubt.. but what was she wearing? She looks like a brocade lampshade with the furry trim around the widest part of her.

    Y’know, sometimes I think I’m an “A’ight” singer. Until I hear Aretha. Then I realise I’m really crap. She just HAS IT.

    Weird dress, but it didn’t keep her from booging down at the end – the 60s, weird fashion all the way. I love that she looks so happy in this – when I’ve seen her the last few years, different TV spots, she looks so unhappy. Lots of health problems I’ve read. Sorry for her – she is, as Breeze said, IT. Nice flash back to the past – you always find the grooviest stuff Ash!

    Regardless of what she wore, it’s ‘Retha man! Thanks for posting this Ash, and thank YOU Taylor for your appreciation for and interpretation of the greats.

    Aretha in the P.M. is just as good!

    A lot of times I just choose to listen to the music – this is Exhibit A of why ;).

    I’m very flattered, Veuve. I’m new to yours but I love yours, too. Your wit combined with your love of food makes for great reading.

    She can wear the whole fuckin’ lamp on her head for all I care. She’s IT.
    I lurve her best of all!

  7. I love love love your blog.

    It’s helping me discover music that typically doesn’t make it in my playlist (well… except Aretha, obviously!!)

    That outfit sure is funny…!

    Okay, that was weird. Am I going crazy, or was there a video of Charles Mingus playing Flowers For A Lady here in place of the Aretha video just a few minutes ago?

  9. ellemem says:

    Very nice video of Mingus. Thanks. Is Aretha in this and I missed her?

    But speaking of Aretha Franklin, glorious vocals and “what the hell was she thinking?” fashion choices….
