On this day in music history: June 15, 1968 - “Think” by Aretha Franklin hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 3 weeks, also peaking at #7 on the Hot 100 on the same date. Written by Aretha Franklin and Ted White, it is the first single from Franklin’s third Atlantic album “Aretha Now!”. Recorded on April 15th at Atlantic Studios in New York City, it features members of the Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section including Spooner Oldham (organ), Roger Hawkins (drums), Jimmy Johnson, and Tommy Cogbill (guitar). Bassist Jerry Jemmott also plays on the track and features background vocals by The Sweet Inspirations. Much like Franklin’s hit “Respect”, “Think” will be adopted as a pro civil rights and pro-feminist anthem.
