In 1967 Jerry Schatzberg shot the iconic cover photography for Aretha Franklin’s tenth studio album I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You. Her first album with Atlantic Records. Singer, songwriter, actress, pianist and civil rights activist, the Queen of Soul had 73 singles that charted on the Billboard Hot 100. For decades, this was the most that any solo female artist had ever managed. She went on to winning 18 Grammy awards and was the first woman to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

‘Having made her breakthrough at a crucial moment in the evolution of African-American pop’s political power, Aretha Franklin’s music has since become synonymous with feminine power and self-affirmation, refusing to fade into the background or reinforce old hierarchies. Many of her songs contributed to a radically shifted pop landscape, introducing soul as a genre capable of actively mirroring society’s most pressing issues. And this was well and truly cemented on Franklin’s breakthrough albums, I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You andLady Soul, released in 1967 and 1968 respectively. Marking a major stylistic shakeup and a deeper expression of her own experience as a black woman in America, these albums would place the young Franklin at soul’s pioneering edge, lighting the path ahead to her deserved spot on the throne.’ Classic Album Sundays
