Ten Years Of Gold

LP (Item 75575) Atlantic, Late 60s/Early 70s — Condition: Very Good+

A nice little collection of hit singles that Aretha cut for Atlantic – collected here in a special package to celebrate her 10 years at the label! The work on the set runs from some of the first sides cut back in 1967, to her wonderful 1976 soundtrack Sparkle – which featured writing and production by Curtis Mayfield! Titles include "Something He Can Feel", "Until You Come Back To Me", "Angel", "Day Dreaming", "Rock Steady", "Spanish Harlem", "Think", "Natural Woman", and "I Never Loved A Man".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Cover has light wear.)

Very Good + (plus)

  • Vinyl should be very clean, but can have less luster than near mint.
  • Should still shine under a light, but one or two marks may show up when tilted.
  • Can have a few small marks that may show up easily, but which do not affect play at all. Most marks of this quality will disappear when the record is tilted, and will not be felt with the back of a fingernail.
  • This is the kind of record that will play "near mint", but which will have some signs of use (although not major ones).
  • May have slight surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Columbia, 1962. Sealed
Pretty great stuff by Aretha – despite what the pro-Atlantic Records books say!

Aretha Franklin

Jump To It
Arista, 1982. Very Good+
Aretha's grooving sweetly on a record that's produced by Luther Vandross – and a damn strong one, too! Aretha wasn't the first, or the last classic soul singer to embrace the modern sounds of the early 80s, but relatively few outshined their younger peers as brilliantly as Aretha does here. ...

La Diva
Atlantic, 1979. Near Mint-
A late 70s gem from Aretha Franklin – and although a bit overlooked, a record that still shows many of the best sides of Aretha's talents for Atlantic in the decade!

Aretha (1980)
Arista, 1980. Near Mint-
Classy later soul from Aretha Franklin – a set that's free from some of the too-commercial modes of other 80s work, but which still pushes the envelope nicely from her years at Atlantic!

Aretha Arrives
Atlantic, 1967. Very Good+
Aretha Arrives in great style – and a mixture between her earlier vocal jazz years at Columbia, and her later southern soul sides of the 60s!
