One of the most deeply soulful of Aretha's Columbia albums – and a record that really has her opening up in a hard-hitting style! Some tracks still have a bit of a jazzy flourish, almost in a Gloria Lynne or Esther Phillips approach, but overall the whole album's got a style that prefaces Aretha's Atlantic work nicely – not as stripped down or rootsy, but definitely heading in that direction. Titles include "Blue Holiday", "Take A Look", "Lee Cross", "I'll Keep On Smiling", "Follow Your Heart", and "Won't Be Long". (Columbia Special Products pressing.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Further genius from James Brown at the start of the 70s – a record that's starting to show some of the more open-ended grooves he'd explore with the JBs on their own albums – longer, stretched-out tracks that are way more than simple funk and soul! There's a sense of freewheeling ... LP, Vinyl record album
