Well if you are looking for the definitive soul versions of songs like "Chain Of Fools" (which is spectacular), and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" this is where to find them. Aretha's voice is so self-assured and strong, she just belts out these songs like there's no tomorrow and I can't imagine anyone finding fault with any of them...or with any of the arrangements for that matter. It all just sounds so natural and passionate, she was definitely destined to be a singer. She covers Curtis Mayfield's "People Get Ready", Ray Charles' "Come Back Baby", James Brown's "Money Won't Change You", and well those are some pretty darned big names, but you'd better believe that Aretha owns each and every one of them. I really didn't know a heck of a lot about Aretha or her abilities aside from her hits, but after hearing this I'll definitely try to grab more of her albums because this clearly demonstrates why she is the Queen of Soul.
