bryn listens : aretha

Just heard that Aretha's back on the move and will have some performances in the New York area this year. Good for you, Queen!

This song, from her Soul '69 album, is one of the best versions I've ever heard. The quality on this is not so great but the way it builds is goosebump-inducing for me every.single.time. The horns. So devastating and yet it somehow gets me jumping around in a mad craze each time.

Listen with me:

"Tracks of My Tears" by Aretha Franklin
