On this day in music history…

Aretha FranklinAretha Franklin sings Otis Redding’s “Respect” to the top of the charts where it stayed for 2 weeks in 1967.  Franklin would later give a great rendition of the song in the movie The Blues Brothers.  Who could forget that?

 

 

The Staples SingersThe Staples Singers take “I’ll Take You There” to number 1 for a week in 1972.  One of my alltime favorite performances is shown in the movie The Last Waltz with the Staples Singers singing The Weight with The Band.  Great performance.
