LP, Vinyl record album


4.50 11

A well-done showcase of Aretha's best early work for Atlantic Records – a collection that really gets at the deepest soul side of her style, and focuses on the transformation of sound that occurred when Franklin moved over to the label from Columbia. The set's overflowing with greatness – a total of 14 tracks in all, with killer arrangements by Arif Mardin, and landmark production from Tom Dowd, Jerry Wexler, and Mardin. Titles include "Spanish Harlem", "Chain Of Fools", "I Say A Little Prayer", "Dr Feelgood", "Respect", "Baby I Love You", "I Never Loved A Man", "Call Me", and "You're All I Need To Get By".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Atlantic, 1967. Very Good

Funk Or Walk
Atlantic, 1978. Very Good+
A funky female duo from the P-Funk empire – one of George Clinton's few girl-based projects of the 70s, and a group who are markedly more funk-based than Parlet!
