Aretha Franklin: La Diva Blame what's wrong with this record on the late trite Van McCoy, one of the most tasteless arrangers ever to produce an LP. What saves it is that McCoy didn't control half of these songs-arrangements by Richard Gibbs and Arthur Jenkins (rhythm only) and Zulema Cusseaux and Skip Scarborough (rhythm plus orchestration) provide frequent relief. Aretha contributes two sisterly originals, which are really fine, and one loverly original, which isn't. Because McCoy keeps intruding she never gets a flow going

Aretha Franklin Atlantic Atlantic (label) Soul (CD, LP). A late 70s gem from Aretha Franklin – and although a bit overlooked, a record that still shows many of the best sides of Aretha's talents for Atlantic in the decade! The main arrangements here are done by Van McCoy – and while they show a bit of a dancefloor spin, they're not as overly disco as you might expect – and instead serve mostly to buoy up Aretha's vocals with a full, rich approach to soul music – one that still lets the lady really take the lead vocally, but also get a wonderfully.
