Album of the Day
THE ATLANTIC SINGLES COLLECTION 1967-1970
When Aretha Franklin joined Atlantic Records in 1967, it was the beginning of an unprecedented run that would ultimately cement her place as one of the most influential singers of all time. Within the space of just three years, her name was almost never out of U.S Pop and R&B Top 20, garnering nine gold singles, three gold albums and three Grammy Awards. THE ATLANTIC SINGLES COLLECTION 1967-1970 spotlights this historic period in her career with 34 singles in chronological order. The new 2-disc set is stacked with many of Franklin's best-known songs, including such #1 R&B hits as "Respect" (also a Pop #1), "Baby I Love You," "Chain Of Fools" and "Think." Several of the songs on THE ATLANTIC SINGLES COLLECTION are covers that underscore Franklin's exceptional skill as an interpreter; among the highlights are titanic versions of Sam Cooke's "You Send Me," The Beatles' "Eleanor Rigby" and Dionne Warwick's "I Say A Little Prayer."
