  1. Thanks for posting this, Oliver. I admit, I’ve bought into that narrative and only have Arethea’s Atlantic albums, but perhaps I should branch out and get familiar with her Columbia period. Any thoughts on the “Every Day I Sing The Blues” album they put out after her Atlantic success, where they took vocals from some of her Columbia output and paired them with newly-recorded instrumental tracks, with an updated “soul” sound?

  2. the bottom line… Columbia buttoned up a rock star. Atlantic let the rock star out……

    moral of the story: don’t button up a rock star! thank buddha Jimi got free.
