Get your groove on with Aretha Franklin and Tom Jones singing together live in 1969.
My college friend Gary sent this to me knowing I’d LOVE it! And he was right 🙂
Here’s how he set the scene:
We begin with a particularly lively Aretha, looking fantastic, delivering a SPECTACULAR “I Say A Little Prayer.” (Seriously, my head almost exploded.)
Medley next, with Tom and Aretha, both at the top of their powers, with no hint of competitive elbowing – just a mutual admiration society (Toms knows who’s in charge here) – “ It’s Not Unusual” / “Seesaw”* / “Spirit In The Dark”
“Seesaw” (4:30 to 6:47) is a perfect example of what I thought life would always be like — inclusive of vocals, visuals, and vibe.
Last up, “The Party’s Over,” with Aretha looking gorgeous in white beaded mini dress (!), sporting a perfect fro do (!!) and Tom reminding me why he was my first – and best – imaginary celebrity boyfriend.
