Almost immediately after Atlantic released “Baby Sweet Baby” they released this stormer from Franklin, launching a full on Soul Assault in the Billboard Top 100. Another track showcasing why Aretha retains her crowd as the queen of soul, its a high energy relentless soul pounder of biblical proportions. Naturally, this one went straight to the top until the Temptations knocked her off the top spot some 3 weeks later.
It found renewed popularity after the release of The Blues Brothers in 1980, in which Aretha actually starred. Still one of my favourite scenes from the movie to be honest. Cracking tune.
