May Respect Aretha Franklin
Respect
CD Source: The Very Best of, Vol. 1 (1967-69)
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.

It was not released on an album until about two years later, however, when it reached its widest audience on "The History of Otis Redding," a greatest-hits album that climbed to the Billboard pop top 10 in tandem with the great success of the "Dock of the Bay" single.

Honored by: RS DM DG
 
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.

"I Want to Take You Higher" became an anthem after its unforgettable performance at the Woodstock festival. It was first released as a single on the B-side of "Stand!" two weeks prior to the release of the "Stand!" album in April 1969. At that time it gained little traction, charting weakly on its own 6 weeks later. "Higher" was then re-issued as a single in late spring 1970 when the Woodstock movie and soundtrack were released. At that time, competing singles by Sly & The Family Stone and by Ike & Tina Turner diluted each other`s chart success.

It was #1 on the R&B albums chart for 10 weeks. The album version of his cover of "Walk On By" ran just over 12 minutes. The timing here is for the single edit.

A 7:00 version of "Funky Drummer" appears on the 1970 album "In The Jungle Groove" and on the Star Time CD box set. The ten-second Clyde Stubblefield drum solo at the end of Part 2 is claimed to be the most-sampled musical element in all of hip-hop. Public Enemy used it as part of its basic rhythm track throughout "Fight The Power." Chuck D. says "sound of the Funky Drummer" about 12 seconds into this excerpt. Once you`ve listened to the drum solo a few times it`s easier to isolate it from the other elements of "Fight The Power`s" rhythm track.

Stewart`s first solo album made a brief appearance at the bottom of the pop albums chart in December 1969 and then dropped off for a few months. I`ve slotted it with its reappearance in the spring. It re-charted again and reached its highest chart position in February 1972 after the massive success of "Maggie May" and the Every Picture album in summer and fall of 1971.
