Aretha With The Ray Bryant Combo is the second studio album by American singer-songwriter Aretha Franklin, originally released in February 1961 via Columbia Records.

Released when Franklin was only 18, this album was one of the earliest to mark her move from gospel music to what eventually became soul. Aretha's transition is exemplified in the first track “Won’t Be Long” - a secular song with a gospel feel, which is followed by the very non-gospel “Over The Rainbow.

This album shows various aspects of her talent. The poppy “Love Is The Only Thing”(with cooing chorus) is followed by the bluesy “Sweet Lover”, and the soulful “Maybe I'm A Fool” is followed by a jazzy interpretation of “It Ain't Necessarily So”.

Even at this early stage in her career, Aretha was a remarkable vocalist. Seemingly inexhaustible, she could span the whole gamut from high to low, often accompanying herself at the piano.

Check out the tracks: Won't Be Long ; Over The Rainbow. and It Ain't Necessarily So.

This reissued LP with digital download is pressed in Europe on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl.
