Album artwork for Lady Soul by Aretha Franklin

Aretha's Franklin's position as soul music's premier female vocalist was consolidated by this album. Her strident reading of Don Covay's "Chain of Fools" set the tone for a collection on which the singer unveiled several stellar original compositions and reinterpreted a batch of classic songs. Franklin's gospel roots were clearly displayed on the anthem-like "People Get Ready" while her interpretation of "Natural Woman" showed both vulnerable and assertive qualities.

Lady Soul captures a performer at the peak of her power, restating her ability to take material and make it uniquely her own.
