Respect

Music by Otis Redding

Originally Performed by Aretha Franklin

"Respect" is a song written and originally released by American recording artist Otis Redding in 1965. The song became a 1967 hit and signature song for soul singer Aretha Franklin. The music in the two versions is significantly different, and through a few changes in the lyrics, the stories told by the songs have a different flavor. Redding's version is a plea from a desperate man, who will give his woman anything she wants. He won't care if she does him wrong, as long as he gets his due respect when he brings money home.[1] However, Franklin's version is a declaration from a strong, confident woman, who knows that she has everything her man wants. She never does him wrong, and demands his "respect". Franklin's version adds the "R-E-S-P-E-C-T" chorus and the backup singers' refrain of "Sock it to me, sock it to me, sock it to me...".

City Lights : With A Wink And A Smile    Out of Print

The star-spangled "City Lights," from the Garden State, 1992 Sweet Adelines International Champions, have returned with their third CD. Whether it's a plaintive ballad, such as "Little Girl Blue," originally done by the 1957 champion Cracker Jills, and arranged by the legendary Renee Craig, or Gershwin's "Someone To Watch Over Me," the sassy "Hit That Jive, Jack," with it's horn fills and athletic bass line (arranged by Greg Volk), or even City Lights' version of the Aretha classic, "Respect," each song is approached with the same concentration of musicality, originality and elegance.

Songlist: Cornet Man, Jazzman's Serenade, The Colour of My Love, A Wink And a Smile, Little Girl Blue, Hit That Jive Jack, Dayton, Ohio - 1903, All Dressed Up With a Broken Heart, Wrap Your Troubles In Dreams, Respect, Someone to Watch Over Me, Thank You World

Vox One : Vox One

As you might suspect from the self-titling, this is the first recording released in what has come to be recognized as the must-have trilogy of albums by Vox One. Lets go though it. "Edelweiss" is such a difficult harmonization that it became a signature performance tune for the group. "My Romance" almost sounds like a pop/jazz standard only better. "Why Blue" was written by member Yumiko Matsuoka and features a bass and percussive underpinning to a complex wordless scat that's nothing short of great. "The Water Is Wide" is just plain beautiful. "Respect"... well, move over Aretha (sacrilege!). There isn't room in this review! Suffice it to say that the three originals are a portent of things to come, the covers original.

Songlist: Edelweiss, My Romance, Why Blue?, The Water Is Wide, Respect, Ol' Man River, Move On, My Old Kentucky Home, Good Night!, Could You Believe, Missin' You, Amazing Grace
