REGULAR FEATURE: Blues & Soul Years looks back at 1967, one of soul music’s most important/pivotal years. It was the year we crowned Otis Redding and Aretha Franklin King and Queen Of Soul and sadly, the same year we later lost iconic soul royal Otis Redding to a plane crash. Also, the year Blues & Soul Magazine was born.
