Love All The Hurt Away is the thirtieth studio album by American singer Aretha Franklin, the singer's second release for Arista Records.

Despite strong reviews, it was a sales disappointment, topping off below 250,000 copies. Aretha's cover version of Sam & Dave's classic hit "Hold On! I'm Coming" won Franklin her 11th Grammy Award in the Best R&B Vocal Performance, Female category. It was her first Grammy win since 1974.

The album was reissued on CD in 2012 by Cherry Red Records and included 3 bonus tracks [2]
