EDITORS’ NOTES

Covering Aretha’s prolific and wildly successful period at Atlantic Records (1966-74), Rare & Unreleased weaves together outtakes, demos, and B-sides from the soul legend’s vast catalog. “I Never Loved a Man (The Way I Love You)” is a delicate gospel shuffle, the sparse instrumentation granting Aretha’s raw, towering vocals the space to flourish. Her passionate rendition of “My Way” shows off her warm phrasing and instinctive melodic shifts, while “The Fool On the Hill” injects the Beatles track with her love of jazz.
