The Aretha Franklin Box Set

Columbia is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Aretha Franklin’s career with the first-ever collection of her entire Columbia output, including master takes, unissued performances, rare mono mixes and studio conversations. Take A Look: Aretha Franklin Complete on Columbia is a twelve-disc (eleven CDs and one DVD) box set that includes photos from the Sony Music Photo Archives and a collection of documentation and correspondence that tells the story of Aretha’s years with her first label. To house the 12 miniature album jackets and 64-page booklet The Boland Design Company created a custom box with a combination of original Columbia releases as well as several new covers designed in the style of the decade so the entire presentation takes people back to the 1960s.

Frank Harkins, Sony Music, art director; Michael Boland, The Boland Design Company, designer; Adam Farber, Sony Music, project manager; Leo Sacks, producer.

She's so beautiful, and she is still so fly today, i loved the interview with her and Wendy Williams :-D

I do really like the design of it all, I love it when things are taken back in time, but it still looks fresh. The front reminds me of a film poster, and it definitely looks like it's going to be quiet an interactive box.

Definitely gonna have to purchase this yo!
