2 Originals Of Aretha Franklin (I Never Loved A Man The Way I Love You/Aretha Arrives)

LP (Item 996259) Atlantic (Germany), 1967 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP Gatefold

70s double pack that brings together Aretha's first two albums for Atlantic!  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor 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.

Aretha Franklin

Through The Storm
Arista, 1989. Very Good+
Aretha Franklin at the end of the 80s – capping off a big run of records for Arista with another successful collaboration with Narada Michael Walden! There's a bit more of a groove here than before – a nice bounce on many cuts that almost brings in a slight new jack flavor – but ... LP, Vinyl record album

Aretha Franklin

Jump To It
Arista, 1982. Near Mint-
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. ...

Aretha Franklin

Aretha (1986)
Arista, 1986. Near Mint-
A big one from Aretha Franklin's 80s comeback years on Arista Records – a set that features a surprising guest appearance from Keith Richards, but mostly concentrates on Franklin's successful run with producer/arranger Narada Michael Walden – who continues to do a great job of updating ...

Aretha Franklin

Almighty Fire
Atlantic, 1978. Near Mint-
Killer late 70s work from Aretha Franklin – and a set that features production by Curtis Mayfield, in a style that's quite similar to his work with the lady on the Sparkle soundtrack! Aretha somehow sounds deeper here in Curtis' company than on some of her other 70s recordings – and ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1974. Very Good
Mellow sexy Aretha – with warm arrangements by Arif Mardin, and plenty of nice electric piano by the great Richard Tee. Includes a great version of Stevie Wonder's "I Love Every Little Thing About You", plus the tracks "You Move Me", "You'll Never Get To Heaven" ... LP, Vinyl record album

Aretha Franklin

Aretha's Gold
Atlantic, 1969. Very Good-
It's hard to believe that after just a few short years of recording for Atlantic records, Aretha Franklin could come up with enough gold records to warrant a full album of hits for the label – but that's definitely the case with this classic collection from 1969! The fantastic evolution of ... LP, Vinyl record album

Aretha Franklin

Live At Fillmore West
Atlantic, 1971. Very Good+ Gatefold
A completely cooking little live set from Aretha Franklin – and a crowning moment not just in her career, but for Atlantic Records soul in general! Aretha's working here before a very enthusiastic crossover crowd at the Fillmore West in San Francisco – getting tight backing from the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold
One of Aretha Franklin's greatest records – and a complicated batch of jazzy tunes that features arrangements and production by Quincy Jones! The record breaks way past the stock southern soul style of some of Aretha's earlier work for Atlantic – and it features a more sophisticated ... LP, Vinyl record album

Aretha Franklin

Once In A Lifetime
Harmony, Mid 60s. Sealed
Mellow work cut by Aretha at Columbia in the early and mid 60s, and repackaged in this release by the budget arm of the label. The tracks are mostly standards and pop tunes – done by Aretha in a sophisticated jazzy style that reminds us of early 60s work by Dinah Washington or Nancy Wilson. ... LP, Vinyl record album

Dalton & Dubarri

Choice
Hilltak/Atlantic, 1979. Near Mint-
A free soul classic from the Dalton & Dubarri team – smooth and sweet soul with a nice slick finish, and a real talent for coming up with a catchy hook! A few cuts get a bit disco, in a bad way, but there's plenty of great midtempo numbers that sound as great as the earlier work by the ... LP, Vinyl record album
Atlantic, 1974. Near Mint-
Tight funky work from Dr John – a second collaboration with producer Allen Toussaint, and a set that follows strongly on their Right Place record of the year before! The groove's not as messed-up as on the first few Atlantic records by the Doctor – but in it's place is a sweet electric ... LP, Vinyl record album
