Live at the Fillmore


You ain't heard "Love the One Your With" until you've heard the "Sweethearts of Soul" soaring on top, the Memphis Horns chirping underneath, and Franklin barreling down the middle. Culled from three Fillmore nights in early 1971, you get the original sweat-drenched album (including the Billy Preston-led band, with Ray Charles guesting) plus a bonus disc with a tweaking version of Jimmy Webb's lovely "Mixed-Up Girl" and an alternate, ass-shaking gospel reading of "Eleanor Rigby." Goose bumps.
