• aretha and reverend franklin Never Grow Old (CD, £9.50)

    Aretha Franklin was one of the giants of soul music, and indeed of American pop as a whole. More than any other performer, she epitomised soul at its most gospel-charged. Her astonishing run of late-'60s hits - "Respect", "I Never Loved a Man", "Chain of Fools", "Baby I Love You", "I Say a Little Prayer", "Think", "The House That Jack Built" and several others - earned her the title "Lady Soul", which she has worn uncontested ever since. Franklin won a total of 18 Grammy Awards and is one of the best-selling artists of all time, having sold over 75 million records worldwide. Franklin has been honoured throughout her career including a 1987 induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in which she became the first female performer to be inducted. She was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2005. Hear the one of a kind voice of the great Aretha Franklin, as Aretha sings beloved gospel songs, including I Will Trust in The Lord and the title song. Also featuring her father Reverend Franklin.
