Best female vocals on CD

Want recommendations for Female recordings on CD. Thanks Joe
I haven't seen Maria Muldaur mentioned here. I saw her live about a year ago and she still has a powerful and seductive voice.
Lisa Garrard is tops right now. Unbelievable range. Their recordings are also the best. Has anyone see a live show of Dead Can Dance?
Hey, has anyone mentioned Aretha Franklin? She gives me goose bumps. That's a good thing, if someones sound can do that for you.
I see after going through this thread that Garfish has mentioned Aretha earlier. Her song Freeway of Love is awesome, has a fine sax solo with Clarence Clemons.
To Snook2.You got it man.
