Aretha Franklin Live in 1971

Posted by Maximum Fun on 17th August 2006

At the Montreux Jazz Festival. Looking beautiful in a short natural, and singing her ass off.

Sometimes I get annoyed by Aretha’s omnipresence, and her universal acclaim, but then I listen to “Live at the Fillmore West,” or “Amazing Grace” and I remember that the reason she’s so fat and famous is because she really is a genius.
