Aretha Franklin - Aretha with The Ray Bryant Combo

Format: LP
Availability: In stock



This essential LP release contains Franklin’s magnificent debut album for Columbia, Aretha (1961), featuring a series of All Star groups conducted by pianist Ray Bryant. Producer John Hammond followed the formula he once prescribed for his “discovery” Billie Holiday: standards and blues with a jazz rhythm section plus horns and “head charts.”. In addition to the original album, this limited collector’s edition contains 4 bonus tracks from the same period: I Apologize, It’s So Heartbreakin’, Don’t Cry, Baby, and Rock-A-Bye Your Baby with a Dixie Melody. It serves as the best introduction for anyone wanting to explore “Lady Soul’s” first steps. This is the material upon which Aretha’s soul kingdom and unique personal style were built
