This chapter describes the importance of the New York Aretha session to Chips Moman and his friends. It proved that their backup work could be as effective behind a new star as it was with an established performer; it solidified their professional relationship with Atlantic; and, most significantly of all to Chips—he had proven that he, Tommy Cogbill, and Dan Penn could take on New York and meet its challenges on their terms. Because of the Wilson Pickett and Aretha sessions, R&B was considered American Studios’ specialty; it was this side of the group’s music that had begun to interest both established producers and some of the newer producers upon the scene, chief among whom was Papa Don Schroeder.

Keywords:   New York, Aretha Franklin, Chips Moman, Tommy Cogbill, Dan Penn, Papa Don Schroeder
