Allison Crowe, in concert, performs "I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)" - a song written in the '60s by Ronnie Shannon, and which was a break-through hit for Aretha Franklin.
Allison's Dad, Del, starts out unsteady on the camera, but zooms and settles in for most of the song.
Bob Muller, curator of cover songs at JoniMitchell.com says: "it takes a lot of self-confidence to tackle Aretha's version of "I Never Loved a Man..." but Allison does and nails it just as good as the Queen of Soul herself. Her piano playing is equally exquisite. Treat yourself to one of the mightiest talents on the singer-songwriter scene today."
Scott LJ helped with the recording, and "Lost" vidder Cylune helped us format these things...
Another live, first-take, recording of this song appears on Allison's "This Little Bird" CD/album.
