Event description

Description

We are kicking off 2019 with a special double bill in tribute to the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin. We will be featuring full vinyl album playbacks of both I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You & Lady Soul and discussing these with our very special guest, Ashley Beedle.

While the inclusion of "Respect", one of the truly seminal singles in pop history, is in and of itself sufficient to earn I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You classic status, Aretha Franklin's Atlantic label debut is an indisputable masterpiece from start to finish. Much of the credit is due to producer Jerry Wexler, who finally unleashed the soulful intensity so long kept under wraps during her Columbia tenure; assembling a great Muscle Shoals backing band along with an abundance of impeccable material, Wexler creates the ideal setting to allow Aretha to ascend to the throne of Queen of Soul, and she responds with the strongest performances of her career.

Lady Soul is the twelfth studio album by American singer Aretha Franklin, and it was released on January 22, 1968, by Atlantic Records.

Powered by three hit singles (each nested in the upper reaches of the pop Top Ten), Lady Soul became Aretha Franklin's second gold LP and remained in the charts for over a year.

House music producer and DJ of note since the early 90s (Black Science Orchestra, Ballistic Brothers, X-Press 2) - Ashley Beedle's career in music has been prolific and continues to impress. Daft Punk reference him as one of their "Teachers". He has remixed artists as diverse asd Bob Marley, Elton John, Kate Bush and Lily Allen to great acclaim. He will be joining us to discuss these 2 classic soul albums and take questions from the audience.

Our audio menu for the event will be:
Rega Elys 2 moving magnet cartridge, Rega Planar 3 turntable, Rega Elex-R amplifier, Chord Signature speaker cable, Bowers and Wilkins 607 speakers.
