Aretha's Franklin's position as soul music's premier female vocalist was consolidated by this album.

Her strident reading of Don Covay's Chain of Fools set the tone for a collection on which the singer unveiled several stellar original compositions and reinterpreted a batch of classic songs. Franklin'sgospel roots were clearly displayed on the anthem-like People get ready while her interpretation of Natural woman showed both vulnerable and assertive qualities. Lady Soul captures a performer at the peak of her power, restating her ability to take material and make it uniquely her own.
