Saturday Night At The Liberal Curmudgeon: Aretha Franklin, The Queen Of Soul

Aretha Franklin, the Queen of Soul, fused gospel, jazz, the blues and R&B–influences that are clear in this rendition of "Chain of Fools" on the Mike Douglas Show, December 25, 1967. Rolling Stone ranked Franklin ninth on the list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time; four years later, the magazine named her number one on the list of the Greatest Singers of All Time. If you're not at least tapping your foot during this rousing performance, check your pulse.
