Aretha Franklin – Live At Fillmore West (1971) • Rhino Atlantic [2006]

Az 1952-ben alapított brit könnyűzenei szaklap, a New Musical Express (NME) összegyűjtötte és rendszerezte a legjobb koncertalbumokat The 50 Greatest Live Albums Ever cím alatt. Ez az album a 16-ik a listán.

The recording was made at the Fillmore West concert hall, the storied rock venue in San Francisco, over three nights, March 5, 6 and 7 in 1971. The album opens with Aretha’s best-known song, her version of Otis Redding’s “Respect”. The album features Aretha’s take on many “hippie” anthems as Aretha and Atlantic Records executive/album producer Jerry Wexler wanted to reach out to the expected hippie audience in San Francisco. Covers include the Bread song “Make it With You”, the Stephen Stills song, “Love the One You’re With”, Diana Ross’ “Reach Out and Touch (Somebody’s Hand)”, the Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby” and Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge over Troubled Water”.
