Aretha Franklin - R.E.C.E.P.T.S.T.O.C.K.H.O.L.M

Aretha Live!!!In 1967, Franklin issued her first Atlantic single, "I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You)", a bluesy ballad that introduced listeners to Franklin's gospel-throated vocals. Produced by Jerry Wexler, the song became Franklin's breakthrough single hitting the Top 10 on the Hot 100 and holding the #1 spot for an amazing 7 weeks on Billboard's R&B Singles chart. The B-side to the single, "Do Right Woman, Do Right Man" introduced a more gospel element to Franklin's developing sound and charted well on the R&B side. Her next single, "Respect", firmly launched Franklin to superstardom. Written and originally recorded by Otis Redding, Franklin's feminist version of the song became a monster hit reaching #1 on both the R&B and the Pop charts and helping her Atlantic debut album, I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You, reach million-seller status. For the next ten months, Franklin issued top ten hits such as "Baby I Love You", "Chain Of Fools" and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman". In early 1968 she won her first two Grammies for "Respect" including the first Grammy given to an artist in the Best R&B Female Vocal Performance category. Because of this, Franklin would automatically be a winner of eight Best R&B Female Vocal Performance categories in a role before Natalie Cole broke the streak with her single, "This Will Be (An Everlasting Love)", which ironically was originally given to Franklin who passed on it.
