Author Moxx (5 years)
Absolutely stunning version of the song. This song is so often sung with
phony passion and overblown accompaniment -so much so that I don't think I
can stand to listen to it. Aretha's changed that for me. Love it!

Thanks for posting this, Emeless!!! I have been on a bit of a crusade
lately to find and hear Billy at his best...I'm finding out that Preston
was a much deeper person and musician than most people realize. And what a
special gift God gave him. To hear him play for Aretha is a special treat.

I taped it the night it aired. I was working 3-11p and got home in just
enough time to adjust the rabbit ears-due to the outage of my cable box,
and pop a tape in the VCR. So glad you were able to see it again. One of my
favorite TV interviews and performances of Aretha. Thanks for your comments!

Author Johnlee55 (4 years)
Claiming a Joan Baez version is better than an Aretha version is blasphemy.
