I love this photo! I’m doing my best to narrow down when it was taken, and I think I’ve landed on The Fillmore West, September 27, 1970.

Aretha Franklin: The Queen of Soul, having worked up a mighty, mighty sweat, with surprise guest Ray Charles on the song “Spirit In The Night,” March 7, 1971, photo by Jim Marshall.

Aretha’s shows on March 5-7 produced a stunning live album, Aretha Live at Fillmore West. It was released just two months later, on May 19, 1971. Highly, highly recommended.

Janis Joplin at The Fillmore, San Francisco, 1968, by Paul Fusco. ‘Photographing Janis Joplin in concert was so intense that it stayed with me. I felt connected to her. Her voice shocks the listener with its power – and I try to shock my audience into feeling what I do when I take a photo’
