Soul Sides Podcast #4: January 3, 2005
Assorted Aretha Franklin songs from Jazz to Soul and Queen In Waiting.

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.
