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.
