Biography

“There are singers,” said Ray Charles, “then there is Aretha. She towers above the rest. Others are good, but Aretha is great. She’s my only sure-enough sister.”

Since the moment Aretha stepped to the pulpit at her father’s famed New Bethel Baptist Church as a young girl singing in the great gospel tradition, the world has recognized her as a musical ... Read more in Amazon's Aretha Franklin Store

There are several compilation double CD's covering most of Aretha's more well known songs and I think this is the best. It is available at a low price and has better quality mastering than say on "RESPECT" with a lot less hiss on the older tracks.{see my review of that and please note I did not know of this CD at the time of writing}. There is another similar CD called "Greatest Hits (remastered) Import, ASIN: B00004Y29P" which costs a great deal more and has fewer tracks, of which almost all are in the same running order. Despite having a good ear(2) and stereo I could see no difference in sound quality on the remastered CD, so why pay more for less. Chris B

Songs new and old that have so much soul you can loose yours in her perfection. A voice that moves, singing songs that you can truly feel. A must, must, must have - buy it or miss out on a collection classic.

All of Aretha's best and most popular songs are here for the most avid and discerning fan's auditory delight. From the colossal 'Respect' -- erupting with anger and sexual tension -- to the hip-hop and funky 'Rose is Still a Rose', this album truly offers the greatest of Aretha Franklin's inimitable voice and style. Besides these, there are several others on the album which have become classics, such as the beautifully sung and crafted 'I Say A Little Prayer', with its immediately recognizable opening and towering vocals. Add to this such beauties as 'Think', 'I Never Loved A Man (The Way I Love You)', 'Chain of Fools', Ain't No Way' and 'Until You Come Back to Me (That's What I'm Gonna Do)' and you have a definitive collection of Aretha's outstanding contribution to music that just comes short of buying every album she's ever made.

This is a really great compilation album of the greatest singer you'll ever hear and is worth every penny. Highly recommended!

Hello, love this CD (two CDS) of Aretha's greatest. I play these at home, in the car and also at work. I play these at work with people with learning disabilities and their faces light up when they hear Aretha start to sing and the beats to all her songs. You can see a real dfference in their responses to Aretha's music, it's great to see. Thank you very much.

Didn't own any Aretha Franklin and thought it was high time I did. A good way to own a collection of some of her best known songs with others that I didn't necessarily know before.

Really only bought it for a few tracks nowadays it's just as easy to download individual tracks, having said that it's a good CD and it's easy enough to skip what you don't like!
