Aretha's Gold is a greatest hits album by Aretha Franklin, released in 1969 at Atlantic Recording Corporation. This stunning array of her biggest #1's and other smash hit singles mostly feature the super group backing band of Duane Allman, Arif Mardin, Jerry Wexler, Tom Dowd, Roger Hawkins, Spooner Oldham and Jimmy Johnson.

The album dominated the top of the soul and pop charts for over a year. Her songs and soulful delivery illustrate why, over four decades since release, Aretha still is the Queen of Soul.

The album's tracks were recorded at Atlantic Studios, New York City, except "I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)" and "Do Right Woman, Do Right Man", which were recorded at the Fame Recording Studios, Muscle Shoals, Alabama.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
