GREATEST HITS (1980-1994) contains all of Aretha's hits since arriving at Arista records in 1980 as well as several new songs recorded for this release.
"A Deeper Love" was nominated for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance in the 37th Annual Grammy Awards.
This GREATEST HITS compilation brings together the Queen of Soul's singles from the 1989s and early '90s. Included are the hits "Freeway of Love" and "Who's Zooming Who?"
The German edition comes with one bonus cut.
This aptly named best-of album collects the creme de la creme of Lady Soul's post-Atlantic Records work, a fruitful period in which she re-invented herself as an all-purpose pop diva. Highlights include several star duets, among them "United Together," a classic Burt Bacharach ballad done with Michael McDonald, and the perky "Doctor's Orders," with Luther Vandross; as well as more urban fare such as the tell-it-like-it-is "Who's Zoomin' Who" and "Jump to It." There's also a show-stopping rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream," the big number from the musical LES MISERABLES, and the brilliant crossover smash "Freeway of Love," an almost-rocker which introduced Aretha to the MTV generation.
