Biography

“There are singers,” said Ray Charles, “then there is Aretha. She towers above the rest. Others are good, but Aretha is great. She’s my only sure-enough sister.”

Since the moment Aretha stepped to the pulpit at her father’s famed New Bethel Baptist Church as a young girl singing in the great gospel tradition, the world has recognized her as a musical ... Read more in Amazon's Aretha Franklin Store

Format: Audio CD
One of the prior reviewers was right on point when mentioning that this set is all about The Voice.

ARETHA IN PARIS has gotten bad press from day one because of the band. Granted, they are not the best and they are downright wretched in a few spots. They are wooden and not the best fit at all for Aretha's approach to music and her style of singing.

But ...

Aretha's talent -- especially in 1968 -- was (and is) bright enough to overcome a band not being what they should be. Aretha's fire, emotion, and the quality of The Voice makes this album a keeper. I think this version of Soul Serenade outdoes the studio take. Her vocal acrobatics and timing are amazing and always artistic .. not this overdone mess that passes for "sanging" nowadays.

The pace of the album is frenetic too, something else that has drawn criticism. Many of the uptempo songs are a notch or two faster than the originals. Well, I'm here to tell you that until the past 10 years or so Aretha always did that in concert. Is Ree "rushing" through the cuts or did she just add a little espresso to them? I guess each person would have to answer that for themselves. But in my opinion, it's just yet another reflection of her gospel roots, and I love the breakneck pace of Respect, Come Back Baby, and others.

As usual, when Aretha decides to accompany herself on piano ... watch out. She does so on a few songs here, including the staple Dr. Feelgood.

Subpar band aside, ARETHA IN PARIS is worth the time and money just to hear what is arguably the greatest voice of our lifetime.

When Aretha Franklin overcame her fear of flying long enough to swing through Europe for a two-week tour, ARETHA IN PARIS was the brilliant by-product. This exquisite slice of Lady Soul's spectacular presence in a live setting came at a time when she was making her mark as the Queen Of Soul. Backed by a full orchestra and a trio of vocalists that included sister Carolyn, Franklin played a set consisting of material that was barely a year old.
On Willie Nelson's "Night Life," the legendary singer can be heard preaching her sorrow to the crowd (she had temporarily separated with husband Ted White that night). Regardless of any pain she may have been going through that night, Franklin's energy never flags as she rips into energetic versions of Ray Charles' "Come Back Baby" and Otis Redding's "Respect." Most impressive are renditions of her own soul classics such as "Dr. Feelgood (Love Is A Serious Business)" and "I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You)," both which benefit from slow build-ups and spine-tingling finales.

Aretha's backing band on this live disc is dreadful. Out of time, out of tune, and quite sloppy. But that VOICE ! She sounds superb. The only flub is at the begining of "Don't Let Me Lose This Dream" where she comes in kinda late with a spoken intro. But she absolutely nails the songs from her first few albums. I especially love the opening number "Satisfaction" , the Rolling Stones song is given the Aretha Treatment, with the Sweet Inspirations offering back up in a call and response style. While the band sounds better on her Live at the Fillmore set, this is a worthwhile effort, if you like her early Atlantic work. ( The only reason I dock this one point is because of the band. )

the title of this review is the jeopardyesque answer to the question that the music of this album brings forth. this album of music on cd format is soul music at it's zentith on display and should be considered a compulsary for music collectors and lovers. consider the first four songs performed on this album, they are not aretha's hit songs but they are aretha's best singing, also notice the background singers performance on satisfaction (i can't no) and come back baby, that's an example of soul musics church roots. i can't believe i'm the first one to review this cd, and i hope i am not the only who's looking for it, this performance is a gem and you will not be sorry for purchasing this cd. i gave it a 5 star rating with extreme partiality for a very good reason, if i may quote an old american folk saying: it's bad!

I know a few reviewers think the band on this isn't very good, but for me it swings. I have to agree with the person who said Soul Serenade is better than the studio version. It's FAR better. As James Brown would say, "The groove is here."

I think the album is full of great performances, the drummer kicks it and I like the song selection a lot more than Fillmore. Less Bread covers, more Aretha. Also the piano is front and center. I assume it's Aretha herself and it's stellar.

Maybe I'm just less sensitive to things being out of tune. I don't know. But I love this album.

Aretha Franklin is singing her heart out, the horn section is playing well, the drums, guitars, keyboards are complementing Aretha very well, Oh, but but the bass. The bass is so badly out of tune that it rendered this complete project as dreadful. I give this recording 4 stars only because all of the band [except the bass player] and Aretha performed so well. I do not understand why Atlantic records released this recording with errors like this on it.
