I can’t help thinking that sometime in 1969, someone in the Atlantic office said, “Let’s make an ‘Aretha Franklin Sings Inappropriate Songs’ album. We could have lots of songs that are totally inappropriate for Aretha’s singing style. […]

Wilson & Alroy’s Record Reviews
Wexler abandoned the experimentation of the previous album, returning to her earlier sound; in an attempt to recapture the top of the charts, Wexler persuaded Franklin to record “The Weight,” about which he later said, “Commercial stupidity and greed got the upper hand in me.” […]
