What kind of a music lover would I be if I didn’t acknowledge the birthday of Aretha Franklin? Talk about a voice that carries you away, her box set got me through many a lonely all-night bread shift. Here she is in all her gospel-soaked glory belting out Do Right Woman, Do Right Man with James Brown’s Famous Flames. If you want a do-right-all-day woman, You’ve got to be a do-right-all-night man.
Hard to argue with that logic.
