Vinyl debut of Aretha's 2008 yuletide collection
The world continues to mourn the loss of Aretha Franklin, who died in August 2018 at age 76. A newly-mixed version of Aretha's 2008 rendition of "Silent Night," with just Franklin singing and playing piano, appears on her 2008 holiday album This Christmas, which will get its vinyl debut on November 16. The nine track LP features well-known yuletide tunes such as "Angels We Have Heard on High" and "Hark! The Herald Angels Sing," plus newer holiday songs like the title track and "My Grown-Up Christmas List."
Tena Clark, producer of This Christmas, notes that Franklin's "beautiful spirit is radiant throughout the record and this new mix of ‘Silent Night' showcases what an incomparable force she truly was, both on vocals and piano."
