December 24, 2017 Records of the Day

The first big hit for the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, came in 1967 with “I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)” The song is listed among the biggies on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. After 9 albums and little success with Columbia records, Aretha’s first album for Atlantic launched her as a superstar. The 45 of “I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)” is worth up to $15.00 but the album of the same name can sell for $100.00 today.
