There just isn't a bad cut on this CD. However, your favorite song will probably depend upon your particular frame of mind and spirit when you listen to these selections. Look out for the sparkling "Without the One You Love" with Aretha featured on the piano and singing live. Here she allows you in her audience, but heartbreak is the price of admission. . . .listen to the lyrics - - "one telephone call, you know that you ought to write me one line or so, all of these can mean a world of difference/just how much you'll never Ever EVER know."
Long live the Queen.
So if you like bluesy ballads sung with force and vibrance(not screeching) you should add this to your collection. Each cut is a gem. To correct an earlier post, the song that she's covering of
Sinatra song, "Without the One You Love." When she sings, "those picnics at the beach"" is actually called "Only the Lonely", written by Sammy Cahn & Jimmy Van Heusen, rarely covered by anyone else..
