A little something from us at Newstalgia to take you into the New Year. It's the legendary Aretha Franklin, kicking off her 1968 European Tour in Stockholm Sweden. The sound is a little dicey the first minute or so (it IS a 1968 tape after all) but it settles in and it's a great concert with Aretha in top form. Here's a list of what she does and who's in the band:
Aretha Franklin - Konserthuset, Stockholm, Sweden, May 2nd 1968, FM.

I don't have to tell you not only what a legend she is, but how much all of our prayers are with her for a speedy recovery. And just a reminder of why she will forever be known as The Queen Of Soul.
Happy New Year from the gang at Newstalgia.
