At first listen I did not like this very much, I think Insurgentes is one my of my favorite recordings in this decade. But after several listening's The Raven That Refused to Sing: And Other Stories has grown on me significantly and I find it in my album rotations more and more frequently ~ although it still hasn't reached the level of Insurgentes to me, but still an excellent album.

I still don't like it very much. Insurgentes is really really hard to top

I've been in the Listening Cave for a while.  Listened to two more hours of Art Pepper from the previous box sets. And the below three CDs...This next...

Hey Lon, have you had the chance to check out the Muscle Shoals documentary yet?  Aretha did some of her best work there and in the MS documentary she speaks up about it.  I highly recommend watching that video for sure ... there are/were some interesting aspects to recording in that place not to mention a lot of songs and artists that recorded there that I was unaware of prior to watching it.

Thanks Hans, I might get around to it, I have literally dozens of videos lined up to watcn and very limited time to do so, and Muscle Shoals is lower down on my priorities than others.

I think all Aretha's work for Columbia and Atlantic are wonderful. The special appeal to this one for me is Joe South. Not really a Muscle Shoals studio guy, but his guitar playing here is something else.

Listening to this on spotify.  I can't find the Atlantic Box set "Passions of a Man" or my 1998 Rhino CD reissue...

Lon,  what is the best sounding version of this?...I know you must have one of those Japanese alphabet soup releases...SMH, XRCD, Blu Spec, etc.  It looks like I might as well buy another copy....easier than cleaning up and organizing my life.  Mark.

Mark, to the best of my knowledge this has never been an XRCD, SHM-CD or a Blu-Spec cd (those tend to be CBS/Columbia/Sony titles and a few independent Japanese labels). The best sounding I have is the new plain jane 24 bit reissue from Japan, budget priced.
