A brief 12-track collection of Aretha Franklin's hits from her Arista period (post-1981), Platinum & Gold Collection includes her three Top Ten hits of the era: "Freeway of Love," "Who's Zoomin' Who," and "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)." The compilers use their nine other selections wisely -- with "Jumpin' Jack Flash," "It Isn't, It Wasn't, It Ain't Never Gonna Be," and "A Rose Is Still a Rose" -- but at barely a half-hour, this is strictly a choice for the budget-minded record-buyer. ~ John Bush
