Description

Fontella Bass - Rescue Me (Shindig!, November 6, 1965) 

"Rescue Me" is a song written by Fontella Bass, Raynard Miner and Carl William Smith. In 1965, it was released as a single by Fontella Bass. It would prove the biggest hit of Bass' career, reaching #1 on the R&B charts for four weeks and placing at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Rescue Me" also peaked at number eleven on the UK Singles Chart.

Bass recorded the song in three takes at Chess Studios in Chicago; Minnie Riperton provided background vocals. This most popular of versions is often miscredited to Aretha Franklin; in fact, Bass delivered her fiery vocal on "Rescue Me" three years prior to Franklin's revelatory artistic and commercial breakthrough with "I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)."
