ARETHA ARRIVES followed up Aretha Franklin's smash Atlantic debut, I NEVER LOVED A MAN THE WAY I LOVE YOU, and features a similar cast of Muscle Shoals musicians, with whom she had an unmistakable chemistry. Recorded in three days with producer Jerry Wexler, ARETHA ARRIVES features an eclectic cross-section of covers, putting the Queen of Soul's spin on songs by the likes of ? & the Mysterians, the Rolling Stones, Ray Price and Frank Sinatra. Almost as impressive as her pure, gospel-flavored vocals was Franklin's piano, which she played, despite a broken elbow, on seven of 11 tracks.
