GET IT RIGHT presents the '80s Aretha; the Aretha of "Jump to It," and "Freeway of Love." Having left behind the gritty soul and Gospel sounds of her early work as well as the discofied sounds of her late-'70s efforts, Franklin moved toward a funky, synth-oriented sound in the early-'80s. Though much of the rhythm and melody here is electronically derived, there's no lack of feeling in Franklin's performances. It's virtually impossible for Aretha to invest anything less than her all in a recording, and GET IT RIGHT is no exception. Most of the songs here were written by Luther Vandross and Marcus Miller (the former produced and the latter contributed bass and keys), and while the approach is straight-ahead '80s pop/R&B, the delivery is all Aretha, eminently soulful.
