Paul McCartney has been announced as the winner of what has been called Israeli's "Nobel Prize." The Times Of Israel reported McCartney is the recipient of the 2018 Wolf Prize in Music, and should he choose to accept, he would need to travel to the Holy Land to receive the honor. The official statement regarding McCartney's prize said: "Sir Paul McCartney is one of the greatest songwriters of all time. His versatility underlies an extraordinary wingspan, from the most physical rock to melodies of haunting and heartbreaking intimacy. His lyrics have an equally broad range, from the naive and the charming to the poignant and even desperate. He has touched the hearts of the entire world, both as a Beatle and in his subsequent bands."
The Wolf Foundation's President Reuven Rivlin stated at an event saluting the winners at his Jerusalem home: “together with the prize committee, I and many Israelis share the eternal love for the works of Sir Paul McCartney and the Beatles." Riviln who went on to compare "Macca" to such classical legends as Franz Schubert, Johannes Brahms, and Claude Debussy, among others, went on to say: "there is little doubt that his songs will be sung and savored as long as there are human beings to lift up their voices."
It was 51 years ago today (February 14th, 1967) that Aretha Franklin recorded her cover version of Otis Redding's "Respect." Redding had originally recorded the song in 1965, and scored only a moderate hit when it peaked at Number 35. Redding's arrangement was slightly more upbeat and consisted of only verses with no chorus or bridge.
Aretha recorded the song in New York City's Atlantic Studios, playing piano on the track and using the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section -- a group of four session musicians who mainly played sessions in Nashville and Muscle Shoals, Alabama, before later starting their own Muscle Shoals Sound Studios. It was Aretha's idea to use the tape of King Curtis's sax solo from Sam & Dave's "When Something Is Wrong With My Baby" -- which was recorded the night before at Memphis' Stax Studios -- to create a new bridge to the song.
The song's producer Tom Dowd recalled the session: "Aretha said she liked the song, and started running (through it), although Aretha's sister Carolyn (Franklin) was instrumental in the tempo aspect of it, the way they did it with (the) 'R-E-S-P-E-C-T' lines . . . It just went by very easily."
