Otis Redding`s original version of "Respect," a plea from a traveling man for his woman to treat him right "when I come home," is a top-drawer Stax-Volt song with a typically strong arrangement and vocal. However, as Redding famously said, "that little girl done stole it from me." Aretha Franklin`s cover, with an even better arrangement, a few pointed changes in lyrics, and a bravura vocal performance, achieved one of the great pop recordings of the century. Often called a feminist anthem, Aretha isn`t pleading for respect, she`s declaring and demanding what she deserves, including sexual satisfaction.
 
Sample 1: Respect - Aretha Franklin
 
Sample 2: Respect - Otis Redding

Although written by John Phillips, this track was first recorded with Barry McGuire singing lead over The Mamas & The Papas` backup vocals. At John`s request McGuire`s lead was replaced by Denny Doherty`s, and a flute solo added to the otherwise intact original arrangement. And a classic was born.

Them`s version of "Gloria" by Van Morrison is so well known these days, it may be hard to believe it took this version by The Shadows of Knight to break through to the US market. The song is so good that even a relatively lame cover version holds up pretty well. The cover was contrived to "clean up" the horny urgency of the original so it wouldn`t be banned by some radio stations, notably WLS in Chicago. As you can hear in the samples, a key lyric was changed from "She comes to my room" to "She calls out my name."

I`ve slotted this song when it was originally released as a single and famously bombed on the U.S. charts but reached #3 in the U.K. Phil Spector recorded an entire album with Tina Turner vocals in 1966 and released it that September but it didn`t reach much of an audience until re-released in fall 1969 on the A & M label. Since then the song has been often covered and received much acclaim.

I`ve chosen to spell the name of this song with a comma. It was first released and appeared on pop charts as "Hold On! I`m Comin`." A fuss about sexual connotation led to later releases of the single as "Hold On! I`m A-Comin`." The comma first appeared on the cover of the album of this name. Today iTunes uses no punctuation except the final apostrophe.

Time: 2:23
Sequenced by: single
Honored by: RS DM DG
 
Otis Redding`s original version of "Respect," a plea from a traveling man for his woman to treat him right "when I come home," is a top-drawer Stax-Volt song with a typically strong arrangement and vocal. However, as Redding famously said, "that little girl done stole it from me." Aretha Franklin`s cover, with an even better arrangement, a few pointed changes in lyrics, and a bravura vocal performance, achieved one of the great pop recordings of the century. Often called a feminist anthem, Aretha isn`t pleading for respect, she`s declaring and demanding what she deserves, including sexual satisfaction.
 
Sample 1: Respect - Aretha Franklin
 
Sample 2: Respect - Otis Redding

For American listeners making their own playlists, both stereo and mono 2009 remastered CD sources need an edit after 5:04 to remove the other sound effects that ended the UK releases but not the US releases. The 1967-1970 [2010 remaster] version has both a clean introduction and US-appropriate ending.

Elvis Costello covered this Sam & Dave version on his "Get Happy!!" LP and also released the song as a single. Costello`s version is fast and urgent, while the original is a great slow burner in the inimitable Sam & Dave style which never appeared on an album until the CD reissue era. Listeners might be excused if they didn`t recognize that these are two versions of the same song, so great is Costello`s transformation of the mood and arrangement of the original. Although cover versions are often put down as pale imitations, each of these is a standout recording on its own terms.

"Sunshine of Your Love" was a top 10 hit single during the summer of 1968, but it first made a splash when the Disraeli Gears album was released late in 1967. This CD source is the only one I know for the mono single version. I prefer hearing the drums and guitar together, not widely separated, even at the expense of Clapton`s guitar solo.

An amazing song, with great lyrics, a superb vocal performance, and an unforgettable sound. As heard in the mono mix, the music`s bottom end is urgent and commanding - an insistent fusion of drums and bass driving the song relentlessly as Marvin`s voice plus strings, horns, and background vocals soar and dance above. In contrast, the stereo mix presents drums on the left and just about everything else on the right, spreading out the sound horizontally. The result is still exciting to hear - how could it not be? But the spatial split of drums and bass neuters the heartbeat of this recording, sacrificing one of its greatest virtues. (Nevertheless, as a foregone conclusion, most younger listeners prefer to hear stereo over mono versions of all vintage recordings.)

One of the greatest differences between mono and stereo mixes of all Beatles songs is "Helter Skelter." The stereo mix clocks about 4:30, famously ending with "I`ve got blisters on my fingers!" The mono mix comes to an apparent end at 3:08 and then continues with a heavy riff, fading by 3:39.

"Astral Weeks" was released in November 1968 and never charted. As far as I can tell it was largely unknown until its Rolling Stone review by Greil Marcus, dated March 1, 1969. I`d appreciate hearing from anyone with additional information; for example, if it was in heavy rotation somewhere before March 1969.

"Sing A Simple Song" was somewhat overshadowed by "Everyday People" when initially released as its B-side. On the "Stand!" album it reached a much wider audience.
