Music · Aretha Franklin · With Everything I Feel In Me
Here's something of a 'lost' Aretha Franklin classic.
It's from the 1974 album of the same name and from a time when Aretha wasn't bothering the charts much.
The title track and single (listen, after the jump), which she wrote, is a barnstormer, building to a rocking climax and fade. Her vocals are at the top of her game.
The seriously underrated album is great too, with contributions from Stevie Wonder, Burt Bacharach, Hal David and Arif Mardin production.
Apparently, you can only find this second hand and it's never been released on CD. For shame.
