[Tom Ewing, January 2011]

Example text

Baptist was more sophisticated. They did the triplets. Mm — chang-chang. That’s how they got into it, they clapped and stomped and you had to play the music that way. And when you had something that was a ballad that was slow, it was also in 3/4 time or 12/4. If you didn’t have the 3/4 you had the 12/4, which now represents 12/8 most of the time. But the 12/4 was heavy in the ’40s and ’50s. You had the tambourine that went off that, it was really, truly awesome. Not all of the church-raised musicians who worked in Franklin’s circle during the late ’60s and early ’70s felt this way.

All of it came together in the first song that this group recorded with Franklin, her luminous “Rock Steady,” which was taped at Miami’s Criteria Studios on February 16, 1971, and which appeared on Young, Gifted and Black. It’s a deep funk track, with Purdie’s beat driving the initial propulsion. Guest percussionist Dr. John joins in and underpins Franklin’s assertive and warm voice woven along with Hathaway’s organ lines. Just as Franklin and her sisters Erma and Carolyn had added hip urban slang in the call-and-response section of her version of “Respect” (“sock it to me”) four years earlier, she did the same for this hit single (“what it is”).

It’s a kind of feel that’s not descriptive. ” Her performances were also infrequent, although when she appeared onstage in the spring of 1970, Franklin expressed ambitious plans, especially an ongoing involvement with traditional church music. ”5 When Franklin performed at the Las Vegas International Hotel on June 8, 1970 (her first concert in almost a year), she included Albertina Walker and The Caravans on the bill and would continue touring with this group into the following year. 6 Franklin’s refocus on gospel intertwined with early 1970’s cultural discourse.
