Best female vocals on CD

Want recommendations for Female recordings on CD. Thanks Joe
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.
