Limited Edition 180g Double LP + Bonus 10" Vinyl EP In Deluxe 6mm Slipcase!
Very Limited Repress Of 2011 Set! Only 500 Copies!

In order to celebrate Aretha Franklin's life in Pop music, Music On Vinyl are re-releasing this double album plus a bonus 10" with some of her best recordings for Columbia Records. The remarkable recordings in this deluxe package make a convincing case that Aretha Franklin was already royalty by the time she made her first album for Columbia Records as an 18-year-old gospel singer brimming with hope, possibility and a glimpse of glory.

Newly mastered from the original analog tapes, The Electrifying Aretha Franklin and A Bit of Soul - along with a bonus 10-inch EP - are landmark recordings from Aretha's remarkable career at Columbia. Electrifying electrified audiences when it was released in 1962, winning Aretha top honors in DownBeat magazine's prestigious listeners' poll. Aretha's brief output for Columbia set the stage for her ascendance as the Queen of Soul at Atlantic Records. A Bit Of Soul (recorded in 1965 but previously unreleased!) demonstrates how she found her voice at Columbia. Presented for the first time in its original form, we can hear her divinely inspired soul fire, emerging interpretative grace and vocal sophistication. Indeed, we can hear the very evolution of her musical genius.
