Whew! (#1)

by Chris Randall
 



All this week, I'll be throwing video that has SMPTE. Ho, ho, ho. Seriously though, all this week, I'll be putting up classic soul performances that make your arm hairs stand up. First up is Aretha Franklin's stunning performance of "Dr. Feelgood" at her 68 Premier televised concert. This is one of those performances that absolutely defines the word "soul." Aretha may be all god-bless-this and jesus-loves-me-that nowadays, but she was a dirty, dirty little girl back in the day. And no fuckin' around at the piano, either. Dig those mighty gospel runs.

This reminds me of the brief period I spent trying to convince people that if everyone in the world stopped once a day to listen to some Aretha Franklin, world peace would soon folow.

Either that, or a whole lot of gettin' down and into some serious lovin'.

Hmm, might be the same thing.
