Queen of Soul: The Atlantic Recordings is an 87-track, four-disc box set that covers Aretha Franklin’s Atlantic career, spanning from 1967’s “I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)” to 1976’s “Something He Can Feel.” Over the course of the set, all of Aretha’s best-known songs, including all of her Top Ten pop and R&B singles, are included. For fans who only know the singles, the set is primarily notable for the wealth of album tracks and forgotten singles that are included, which nearly equal the hits in terms of quality. Stopping just short of her move to disco, The Queen of Soul just misses being a totally comprehensive collection, but it remains definitive – it may miss some of her later hits, but every one of her greatest tracks is in the box. The Queen of Soul is one the cornerstones of any soul collection.

The Queen Of Soul creates a rich musical portrait of Franklin s incomparable run at Atlantic Records between 1967 and 1976. Packed with 87 songs arranged chronologically, the set opens with generous selections from the first five studio albums she recorded for the label I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You, Aretha Arrives, Lady Soul, Aretha Now, and Soul 69. Recorded between 1967 and 1968, all five of the albums topped the R&B charts and gave the world classics like “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” “Chain of Fools,” “Think,” and the #1 smash “Respect.” The set also mixes in several rare outtakes of songs like “It Was You” from Aretha Arrives and “Talk to Me, Talk to Me” from Soul 69. The collection also spotlights the great music Franklin recorded in the 1970s, including the two albums she released to open the decade This Girl s in Love with You and Spirit in the Dark. The former boasted an electrifying version of the Band s “The Weight” with Duane Allman on slide guitar, while the latter featured the hit “Don t Play That Song”. Along with several singles from this era (“Spanish Harlem” and “Bridge Over Troubled Water”), The Queen Of Soul also gathers up several live performances with “Spirit in the Dark” (Reprise with Ray Charles) from Aretha Live at the Fillmore West (1971), plus several songs from her live album Amazing Grace (1972). The latter recording won the Grammy Award for Best Soul Gospel Performance in 1973 and remains Franklin s best-selling album to date.
