Franklin, Aretha: Aretha LP
To say that Aretha Franklin was one of the greatest American artists of all time is an understatement. Her multi-octave voice moved millions around the world during an unrivaled career that spanned six decades and garnered the singer-songwriter every achievement and honor imaginable. Franklin's reign as the Queen of Soul is highlighted here with the 20-track vinyl 2LP collection Aretha culled from the new career-spanning box set of the same name. Includes the previously unreleased tracks "Call Me" – Alternate Version, "Until You Come Back To Me" – Work Tape, "You Light Up My Life" and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" – Live, which was originally broadcast on The 38th Annual Kennedy Center Honors on 12/19/15. Franklin's biggest hits are here too, like "I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You)," "Think" and her signature smash, "Respect." But instead of using familiar takes for other hits, the collection selects different versions, like an alternate take of "Chain Of Fools." Featuring artwork by celebrated artist Makeba "KEEBS" Rainey, who provides her signature style to a photo of the Queen Of Soul taken by the legendary photographer, Neal Preston.
