Aretha Franklin's So Damn Happy

See more » Listening

Mostly Iíve neglected Aretha Franklinís post-Atlantic recordings. Although many say they are mediocre, which mostly wouldnít be a huge surprise, Iím sure thereís some pleasurable singing buried there.

So Damn Happy came in the shop and Iíve just finished my first listening. I find some of the backing vocals distracting, backing vocals are easily a distraction with a great soloist. And at first hearing they sound like the same backups on many a hip-hop CD. Maybe my perspective will change when I listen to the CD again.

Happily thereís plenty of Franklinís gospel-born fire on So Damn Happyís. Always a pleasure to see a singer youíve long admired still has her gifts.

Your feelings?

Please share your feelings about Aretha Franklin's So Damn Happy.
Thanks,
Richard
