A book by Michael Awkward; three very different performers -- Aretha Franklin, Al Green and Phoebe Snow -- all used cover songs to negotiate questions of artistic, racial and personal authenticity. This is a story about how all three of them cultivated their own authentic identity by taking up songs associated with those they've been influenced by.
