Aretha Franklin – Get It Right (1983) – Lp
Aretha Louise Franklin (born March 25, 1942) is an American singer–songwriter and musician. All the hits she had and more helped her to gain the title The Queen of Soul by the end of the 1960s decade.
Artist: Aretha Franklin
Title: Get It Right
Label: Arista Records
Luther Vandross scored a popular success with Jump to It, but this follow-up is less impressive and proved less successful. Vandross wrote most of the material, including the number one R&B title track and the R&B Top Ten hit “Every Girl (Wants My Guy),” although he also has Franklin tackle the Temptations hit “I Wish It Would Rain,” in a painfully overwrought production. With this record, what had seemed to be an artist/producer marriage made in heaven hit the rocks. As the title says, there’s no other like Aretha. After the succsesfull ’60’s and ’70’s soul years, she started at the early ’80s focussed on a sound mixed with Funk and Soul. With upcoming artists like Luther Vandross, Fonzi Thornton, Marcus Miller (contributed on this album) this is one of the samples. Just like the former album “Jump To It”, sophisticated with style. Excellent uptempo songs and slow jams.
