I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You, Aretha Franklin's first album for Atlantic Records and famed producer Jerry Wexler, was a pop and soul music milestone that jump-started Franklin's languishing career. Almost overnight, Aretha became a top-selling recording artist and a cultural icon. But the album almost didn't happen. Matt Dobkin has unearthed fascinating details about the recording session in Muscle Shoals, Alabama: about the volatile behavior of Aretha's manager/husband, Ted White; about Aretha's reaction to the lack of black musicians in the session; and about how tempers and alcohol almost derailed the session with only a track and half in the can. This book goes far beyond anything that's been written about "The Queen of Soul" or her music before. I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You is the story of a great achievement and includes scores of fresh interviews: Wexler, the session men from Muscle Shoals, Aretha's own musicians, and others. It gives insight into a star more complex and determined than her modern diva image would seem to indicate. Aretha, a teenage mother and daughter of a commanding preacher father, rose above her circumstances and transformed them into art. She gave the civil rights movement, already well under way in 1967 when the album came out, a passionate call to arms. And with "Respect"--along with the title track, one of the album's first two singles--she provided the burgeoning feminist movement with an enduring theme song. The first serious, nonbiographical look at Aretha Franklin's work, I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You will deepen even ardent fans' understanding of one of the great soul artists of our time, a direct descendant of Bessie Smith and Billie Holliday.

The definitive biography of the Queen of Soul from acclaimed music writer David Ritz. Aretha Franklin began life as the golden daughter of a progressive and promiscuous Baptist preacher. Raised without her mother, she was a gospel prodigy who gave birth to two sons in her teens and left them and her native Detroit for New York, where she struggled to find her true voice. It was not until 1967, when a white Jewish producer insisted she return to her gospel-soul roots, that fame and fortune finally came via "Respect" and a rapidfire string of hits. She has evolved ever since, amidst personal tragedy, surprise Grammy performances, and career reinventions. Again and again, Aretha stubbornly finds a way to triumph over troubles, even as they continue to build. Her hold on the crown is tenacious, and in RESPECT, David Ritz gives us the definitive life of one of the greatest talents in all American culture.

A dazzling exploration of American culture—from high pop to highbrow—by acclaimed music authority, cultural historian, and biographer Anthony Heilbut, author of the now classic The Gospel Sound (“Definitive” —Rolling Stone), Exiled in Paradise, and Thomas Mann (“Electric”—Harold Brodkey). In The Fan Who Knew Too Much, Heilbut writes about art and obsession, from country blues singers and male sopranos to European intellectuals and the originators of radio soap opera—figures transfixed and transformed who helped to change the American cultural landscape. Heilbut writes about Aretha Franklin, the longest-lasting female star of our time, who changed performing for women of all races. He writes about Aretha’s evolution as a singer and performer (she came out of the tradition of Mahalia Jackson); before Aretha, there were only two blues-singing gospel women—Dinah Washington, who told it like it was, and Sister Rosetta Tharpe, who specialized, like Aretha, in ambivalence, erotic gospel, and holy blues. We see the influence of Aretha’s father, C. L. Franklin, famous pastor of Detroit’s New Bethel Baptist Church. Franklin’s albums preached a theology of liberation and racial pride that sold millions and helped prepare the way for Martin Luther King Jr. Reverend Franklin was considered royalty and, Heilbut writes, it was inevitable that his daughter would become the Queen of Soul. In “The Children and Their Secret Closet,” Heilbut writes about gays in the Pentecostal church, the black church’s rock and shield for more than a hundred years, its true heroes, and among its most faithful members and vivid celebrants. And he explores, as well, the influential role of gays in the white Pentecostal church. In “Somebody Else’s Paradise,” Heilbut writes about the German exiles who fled Hitler—Einstein, Hannah Arendt, Marlene Dietrich, and others—and their long reach into the world of American science, art, politics, and literature. He contemplates the continued relevance of the émigré Joseph Roth, a Galician Jew, who died an impoverished alcoholic and is now considered the peer of Kafka and Thomas Mann. And in “Brave Tomorrows for Bachelor’s Children,” Heilbut explores the evolution of the soap opera. He writes about the form itself and how it catered to social outcasts and have-nots; the writers insisting its values were traditional, conservative; their critics seeing soap operas as the secret saboteurs of traditional marriage—the women as castrating wives; their husbands as emasculated men. Heilbut writes that soaps went beyond melodrama, deep into the perverse and the surreal, domesticating Freud and making sibling rivalry, transference, and Oedipal and Electra complexes the stuff of daily life. And he writes of the “daytime serial’s unwed mother,” Irna Phillips, a Chicago wannabe actress (a Margaret Hamilton of the shtetl) who created radio’s most seminal soap operas—Today’s Children, The Road of Life among them—and for television, As the World Turns, Guiding Light, etc., and who became known as the “queen of the soaps.” Hers, Heilbut writes, was the proud perspective of someone who didn’t fit anywhere, the stray no one loved. The Fan Who Knew Too Much is a revelatory look at some of our American icons and iconic institutions, high, low, and exalted. From the Hardcover edition.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Musikwissenschaft, einseitig bedruckt, Note: 1,5, Padagogische Hochschule Ludwigsburg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Auf der Grundlage des Seminars Arrangements fur das Musizieren in der Schule" (Wintersemester 2008/2009) soll hier das Lied I Say A Little Prayer," im Original gesungen von Aretha Franklin, fur eine Schulklasse in der Hauptschule arrangiert werden. Als Besetzung wahle ich Gesang (Solo), Chor sowie Klavier, Gitarre, E-Bass, Posaune und Schlagzeug (Drum-Set). Das Arrangement spricht einen mittleren Schwierigkeitsgrad, vor allem bedingt durch mehrere Taktwechsel innerhalb des Stuckes, an, dennoch bin ich der Meinung, dass es sich, eventuell in einer leicht vereinfachten Form, in der Sekundarstufe I mit Schulerinnen und Schulern spielen beziehungsweise singen lasst. Der Stil des Stuckes, wie ich ihn mir hier vorstelle, geht in die Richtung Jazz/Soul/Blues. Zur Durchfuhrung wird benotigt: Bacharach, Burt (Music) und David, Hal (Words): I Say A Little Prayer."

Aretha Louise Franklin was born on March 25, 1942, in Memphis, the fourth child of the Reverend C.L. Franklin and his wife, Barbara Franklin. Her father was appointed to head the New Bethel Baptist Church in Detroit and Aretha along with her siblings moved to Detroit with their father. By this time, her parents had separated due to her father's frequent philandering. Aretha and her siblings remained with their father, although Aretha has always insisted her mother did not abandon the children. Music and religion were a part of Aretha's natural heritage. Her father was a Baptist minister known for his golden voice. He became famous enough to have his sermons broadcast on the radio, which led to him organizing a traveling revival show. Young Aretha stood out in her father's choir. People noticed her voice immediately and she frequently sang solo. She also learned to play the piano by ear. At the age of 14, her solo renditions became a part of the nationwide recorded sermons and were heard by tens of thousands of listeners.
