EDITORS’ NOTES

A legendary singer who's been steadily working for more than four decades, Aretha Franklin is among the most important artists in pop-music history. Singing gospel, soul, and R&B, she has racked up 20 No. 1 hit singles and 18 GRAMMY® Awards, was the first woman inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and even received a Presidential Medal of Freedom. Released in 1985, Who's Zoomin' Who? was Franklin's first platinum-selling album; it features her last chart-topping hit, "Freeway of Love." With production from Narada Michael Walden (known for his work with a young Whitney Houston), a collaboration with Eurythmics ("Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves"), and all-star guests like Santana, Clarence Clemons, Sylvester, Peter Wolf, and even Dizzy Gillespie (who provides a trumpet solo on "Integrity"), this is a landmark album and a late-career highlight in Franklin's extensive discography. Highly recommended.
