Aretha Franklin: One Step Ahead
From 7″ (Columbia, 1964)
Aretha Franklin’s early career – on Columbia Records – is highlighted in the first Soul Sides Podcast for 2005. The voice quality is a little worse than normal (sorry, technical limitations and all) but lots of good songs here, including a full version of the elusive “One Step Ahead.”
If people don’t mind dropping some feedback in the comments section: let me know if the Podcast site feed function is working properly. Thanks – O.W.
By the way, Home of the Groove has one of the best songs ever up right now: “A Lover and a Friend” by Eddie Bo and Inez Cheatham.
