Digitally re-mastered and expanded edition of this 1980 album from the Queen of Soul. After six years at Columbia, Aretha Franklin signed with Atlantic Records in 1967 and unleashed a stunning array of hit singles during the mid-'60s to the mid- '70s. After Aretha's tenure with Atlantic had lost it's direction, her career was in need of a new focus and Clive Davis knew that he could restore her status and set her to work with producers Chuck Jackson and Arif Mardin. The work paid off quickly with this 1980 album and it's first single 'United We Stand', returning Aretha to the Top 3 of the R&B chart. It was her greatest showing on this chart since 1977. BBR.
