What was it that made the late 70’s and early 80’s music so great? Something magical where — finally, for the first time in history — black, gay, straight, white, … In short everyone was united on a dance floor with music full of joy!

So we share sounds from amazing nights at Les Caves du Roy, GreenGo(s), Les Bains-Douches, Studio 54 and beyond. And there was a queen for this age, her name … Aretha Franklin!

When it comes to Aretha Louise Franklin (March 25, 1942 — August 16, 2018) you may at once think of “Rock Steady”, “The House That Jack Built”, “Respect” and/or other 1960s and 1970’s songs.

For me, it was in LA, a few blocks from Tower Records at 8801 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood that I went to hear her sing. It was 82. I was 12.

Let’s sample songs from the 1980’s Aretha Franklin albums:

Her music includes partnerships with many, such as George Benson, George Michael, Larry Graham, Whitney Houston, James Brown, and Elton John.
