Franklin's early records sold poorly – her Columbia material was lounge-y and overly slick, and she was mistakenly marketed as a supper-club soul singer in the mold of Dinah Washington.

She didn't become the Queen of Soul until she signed to Atlantic Records in 1966. There, she was backed by the Muscle Shoals rhythm section and produced by Jerry Wexler, who added a funky, psychedelic edge to match her gospel fervor. "Jerry asked me to play the piano [in the studio]," she says.

"You could call my piano my trademark, or one of my trademarks." 

Franklin's new album – on which she covers Gladys Knight's "Midnight Train to Georgia" and Adele's "Rolling in the Deep" – reunites her with Clive Davis, who helped revive her career in the Eighties with a series of hits on his Arista label.

Davis had been pushing Franklin to record an album of diva classics for years, sometimes over dinner at the Four Seasons. According to Davis, Franklin hasn't lost any fire. "She's come back in peak form," he says. "The wonder of Aretha is she can do any song. And with very, very few exceptions, two takes is as close to the maximum as she does."

Franklin has some other big plans in mind: She hopes to teach a "master class" at Carnegie Hall and would like to record with both Smokey Robinson ("the fact that we haven't yet is crazy") and Stevie Wonder.

"I saw him play Robert De Niro's tribute the other night, and Stevie was so good. The level of music was 'Whoa!' You should've been there."

For Franklin, the album is a chance to prove herself in a pop world with more divas than ever. "It was never as competitive as it is now," Franklin says. "People are being very selective about what they spend their money on. I understand that this year they haven't had any platinum records.

I hope to have the first one. That would be fabulous."
