The Very Best of Aretha Franklin: The 60's

Greatest Hits: 1980–1994 is the first greatest hits album released by Aretha Franklin since she signed with Arista Records in 1980. As it can be read in the title, it compiles her hits from 1980's Aretha all through her last album at the time, 1991's What You See Is What You Sweat.

Songs from her 1989 album Through the Storm were not included in the set, neither of her duet hit singles with Elton John and legendary icon Whitney Houston. Songs from her second Arista set, 1981's Love All the Hurt Away were not included either, meaning neither the title track hit duet with George Benson nor her Grammy Award winning cover of "Hold On I'm Comin'" were in the set.

Other omissions include her hit duet with the Eurythmics' "Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves" and her 1983 Top 10 R&B hit "Every Girl (Wants My Guy)", produced by Luther Vandross.

However many of Franklin's more recognizable hits during the 1980s can be found in the set, more notably: "Freeway of Love", "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)", "Who's Zoomin' Who?" and "Jump to It".
