Aretha Franklin - Live!

Seen at Cape Cod Melody Tent Friday night, where there's not a bad seat in the house.  Circular, revolving stage in center, rows no more than 20-or-so deep.  Even when The Queen of Soul has a cold and warns us that she may not be able to hit some of the high notes she's still the Queen of Soul.  Her orchestra was great, especially the pianist.  My petty whines:  she did not sing my favorite "Pink Cadillac" ... and I would love to hear her do "Skylark" from that early-sixties Columbia album that my friend Jim Rann owned.  But forget the whines ... she is great!
