One of my many visits to

56 years ago – Muscle Shoals music changed forever, when a 24 year old Aretha Franklin walked into FAME Recording Studio. That first day Aretha sang the opening lyrics to her first hit single “You’re a no good heartbreaker / You’re a liar and you’re a cheat”, from the hit I never Loved aMan the Way I Love You. Aretha became the greatest soul singer of a generation with help from Swampers, Jimmy Johnson, Roger Hawkins, and David Hood along with Spooner Oldham. January 9th, 1967 – the day Aretha found her soul!
