Unfortunately, I haven't heard any Aretha recording which I consider to be well recorded, far less an audiophile recording. This is a pity, since she is, the greatest vocal talent to come along in the last forty years. As far as any new gospel recordings contemplated, I am not aware. You are of course familiar with "Amazing Grace", her live gospel album recorded in church with the Reverend James Cleveland and the Southern California Gospel Choir. It has been re-mastered once or twice, with only fair sonic results. This CD captures the energy of the service, even if it is not even really good audiophile quality. Other than that, there is a 4 CD box set called "Queen of Soul" where with one purchase, you can get all her important recordings (106 songs). Since I am particularly fond of Aretha as a ballad and blues singer, I like the first CD tracks 13 through 18, where she sings lesser known songs such as "You Are My Sunshine", "Going Down Slow", "Never Let Me Go", "I Wonder" and "Prove It". A lot of these songs were on the album "Aretha Arrives", which again has great songs with bad recording quality. The last song on the 1st CD of "Queen of Soul" is "Ain't No Way", written by her sister Carolyn, and, along with the others mentioned, comprise her best work. Most of this music is from circa 1967, and sonically is only average to below average even for that time, but it is still extremely early in her career and her voice is strong, powerful and capable of whatever she wanted to do with it. She could sing rings around what she can do today. Unfortunately, smoking and her extreme overweight have taken some bloom off the rose. Also check out the last song on the last CD called "Something He Can Feel". This was done by En Vogue a while back. This has a modernly recorded sound and is a decent recording. It certainly blows away the En Vogue version. If anyone can come up with some well-recorded Aretha, I would certainly like to know.
