Aretha Franklin’s single release of “Gimme Your Love” brought the Queen of Soul together with the Godfather of Soul, James Brown. The track came from Aretha’s 1989 album ‘Through The Storm’. It was co-written and produced by Narada Michael Walden. So, with 2 legends performing on the song, it doesn’t get any better, right? Well, a 3rd legend joined in later, Prince (he is credited on the record as “?”). He remixed the track and called it the “Purple Mix”. It appeared in several edits but, on this UK promo 12″ we get the full 10:44 “Parts 1&2” version.
