Before Aretha Franklin signed to Atlantic Records and altered the course of music in 1967, she had a career in her late teens and early 20s at Columbia Records. The label had made the Detroit daughter of a soul-stirring Baptist minister into a kind of uptown soul crooner. Columbia had trouble marketing her, but they paired her with many great arrangers and producers, including golden-eared Clyde Otis (Brooke Benton, Dinah Washington), who helmed this immaculately produced 1964 album. Choosing contemporary song covers to help her chances, Otis outfitted Franklin in girl-group pop, such as “The Shoop Shoop Song” and “My Guy.” (The latter was written by Aretha’s pal Smokey Robinson and was a No. 1 hit for Mary Wells that same year.) Franklin makes her “Mockingbird” the definitive one; her words coil around what becomes, in her hands, a gospel discourse on love, life, and motherhood. She pleads in Bacharach-David’s “Walk On By” with uncanny gentleness, and she kicks down doors on “One Room Paradise.” Otis had his finger on the national pop pulse, and what was an obvious grab for pop appeal then is an incredible album today.
