The “King” of Rock and the “Queen” of Soul.
Arbutus Record Show is ready to rock and roll with a SOLD OUT Sunday show and the return of our wonderful vendors with fabulous new items! Join us Sunday, August 19 for some great deals on all your favorite music items. The show is open from 9 am – 3 pm and always FREE! Bring your family, neighbors and friends – air-conditioned with great breakfast and lunch options as well.
We also take note of a sad passing this week – all too soon – of a music icon, the incomparable Aretha Franklin. Aretha was one of the greatest voices of all time. She died on August 16 at the age of 76 of pancreatic cancer. There is another important loss to the music world on that date. It seems fitting that the Queen of Soul passed on the same day, 41 years later, when the King of Rock, Elvis Presley died. One could say that there were never two more influential singers in the history of American music and they are sorely missed. We know many of our vendors are fans so look for Elvis or Aretha music that is special to you.
We imagine they are in the heavenly choir together with the angels! Here is Aretha singing “Say a Little Prayer,” just one of her countless hits. RESPECT.
And a great one from the KING. Much needed these days. “If I Can Dream” with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
