Actually none because the new way of downloading as dictated by Amazon is so convoluted I have not been able to do so. I know I'm an old person but wasn't all this software supposed to make life easier for us all ??

4.0 out of 5 stars Lush and beautiful! 1 Feb. 2011
By Nse Ette - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Aretha Franklin could sing the menu from your local Chinese takeaway and it would still be brilliant. This collection comprises 18 recordings from the 60s, interpretations of compositions by Hoagy Carmichael and Johnny Mercer, George and Ira Gershwin, and Irving Berlin to mention a few.

Sounding very young (she was in her twenties when these were recorded) with her vocals strong and expressive. Some of the songs have Jazzy arrangements (the bouncy "Love For Sale", the horn-driven "What A Diff'rence A Day Made"), some string-swathed Soul ("My Little Brown Book", "Try A Little Tenderness", the Gospel-tinged "Cold Cold Heart", the piano-sprinkled "God Bless The Child"), bouncy Jazz/Soul ("Rock-a-Bye Your Baby with a Dixie Melody"), and Gospel ("Are You Sure"). Her vocals are top notch, but special mention must be made of her fiery performance in "That Lucky Old Sun".

Die-hard fans will probably already own these tracks (from the various albums they were culled). For others like me, this is a superb overview of some of Ms Franklin's overlooked gems.
5.0 out of 5 stars EARLY ARETHA WITH SOME GREAT STANDARDS 24 May 2013
By Cheryl Brown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
THIS was a great CD. First heard it being played at a club in NYC on a Saturday--couldn't wait, ordered it on Monday from Amazon. What a treat to hear Re-Re with her purely fabulous voice back in the day. This is a great, great addition to my music collection. Now if I could just get it back from my boyfriend's car! That would be something. Oh well, I guess we are both enjoying it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tracks from young Aretha 24 Feb. 2012

This collection is from an early time, before "Respect", which was my first contact with her. It shows off her vocal range and a great talent to interpret songs with style and class.
