Super Hot Stamper

Aretha Franklin
Soul '69

  (Item #: franksoul6_1805_1811) 

Our Price: $199.99

  • Superb Double Plus (A++) sound from start to finish and on relatively quiet vinyl too!
  • Both sides here are super big, full and lively with most of the bass and Tubey Magic that's missing from so many copies
  • A tough album to find without condition issues - Aretha's records from this period are amazingly good and far too many of them got played hard
  • "Her vocals are consistently passionate and first-rate... as is the musicianship."

Aretha Franklin - Amazing Grace

A Bit of Experimentation with VTA Can Really Pay Off

  (Item #: frankamazi_wtlf) 



This is a handy record for VTA setup, a subject we discuss at length below.

On the better copies Aretha's vocals are as dynamic as any you will ever hear, and unlike all the records she did with Tom Dowd, her voice never breaks up on this record. If you have big speakers that can play at loud levels, with the right volume level you can really get Aretha to belt it out like nothing you have ever heard.

Aretha Franklin - Aretha Arrives

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: frankareth_2012) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This Atlantic Green & Blue label pressing has TWO GOOD SIDES on relatively quiet vinyl. We pulled together enough clean copies for a big shootout recently and most of them sounded the way you'd probably expect -- thin, bright, and grainy. This copy did a much better job of communicating the music, giving you the kind of life and energy this music needs to work its magic.

Aretha Franklin - Lady Soul

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: frankladys_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

A++ sound and quiet vinyl on both sides of this 1968 soul classic, an album that received a top Five Star rating from the All Music Guide! We've been playing a ton of Aretha Franklin records around here in recent days, but it's hard to find pressing that separate themselves from the pack to give you audiophile-friendly sound for her recordings, which (naturally) seem to be optimized more for the radio than for your hi-rez audio rig. Every now and then, however, we'll luck into a copy that delivers some real soul magic in its grooves, and this was one of those copies. Chain Of Fools and Aretha's great version of Natural Woman sound JUST RIGHT.

Aretha Franklin - Laughing On The Outside

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: franklaugh_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This Minty Original looking Columbia Two Eye Demo LP from 1963 has WONDERFUL sound. It’s sweet and spacious, and the vinyl plays quietly. I don’t think you could find either a better sounding copy of this record.

Aretha's records for Columbia feature a more pop-oriented sound than her later works. This is a great record for those interested in checking out the early roots of one of the greatest singers of all time!

Aretha Franklin - Spirit In The Dark

Our Shootout Winner from 2012

  (Item #: frankspiri_2012) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

Two incredible sides -- an A+++ side one backed with an A++ to A+++ side two -- for one of the best sounding albums Aretha recorded! We've done a ton of Aretha shootouts over the years and I'd put this one up with Amazing Grace as her top titles for sound. Everything we wanted from this music, this copy was DOIN' IT, plain and simple. It's lively, open, present and natural. The soundfield is big and spacious and the bottom end is killer. Aretha fans, you won't want to miss out on this one!

Aretha Franklin - Young, Gifted and Black

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: frankyoung_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

This Atlantic pressing is a MONSTER, easily one of the best we've ever played, and unusually quiet to boot. You will have a very tough time finding a copy with even one side this good, let alone two. The music, of course, is top notch -- and it's even better when you don't have bad sound or crappy vinyl getting in the way. I imagine the Queen Of Soul herself would be very impressed with the way she sounds on this White Hot Stamper pressing.
