Product Notes

2011 marks the 50th anniversary of Aretha Franklin's signing with Columbia Records. Legacy Recordings will commemorate this momentous occasion with a series of releases, including THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK. Aretha Franklin is a legend of soul music, and indeed of American pop as a whole. More than any other performer, she epitomized soul at it's most gospel-charged. Her astonishing run of late-60s hits earned her the title "Queen of Soul," which she has worn uncontested ever since. With these songs by America's greatest composers, Aretha Franklin paved the path to her own greatness. From standards to bebop to gospel and blues, these recordings are indelible snapshots of a special time in the career of a musical legend; a portrait of the artist as a young woman. This stand-alone CD features classic American songs by such classic American composers and lyricists as Billy Strayhorn, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, the Gershwin Brothers, Oscar Hammerstein, Johnny Mercer, Jerome Kern and Hank Williams.
