The Inkspots.320 Kbps

My guess would be that the tracks on this L/P are not the original recordings and probably not the original Inkspots !! but re-recordings and a different line up of singers !

 The Ink Spots were an American pop vocal group who gained international fame in the 1930s and 1940s.

 Since the Ink Spots disbanded in 1954, there have been well over 100 vocal groups calling themselves "The Ink Spots" without any right to the name, and without any original members of the group. These groups often have claimed to be "2nd generation" or "3rd generation" Ink Spots.
 From 1954 to the present, more than 100 groups have used the name "The Ink Spots". In 1967 US federal judge Emmett C. Chaote ruled that since so many groups had been using the name "Ink Spots" that it had become "public domain" and was free for anyone to use.

Aretha Franklin

We now have a Music Queen !! with I guess some of her early recordings !! 1975 to be exact info below !!!

 You is the twenty-fourth studio album by American singer Aretha Franklin, Released on October 16, 1975 by Atlantic Records. It was a critical and commercial disappointment, stalling at #83 on Billboard's album chart. The album's only pop chart single, "Mr. D.J." stalled at just #53 on Billboard's Hot 100, while climbing to only #13 R&B. The title track, issued as the follow-up, reached #15 R&B. The album brought an end to Aretha's long collaboration with producer Jerry Wexler, after signing with Atlantic in 1967. This album is long out-of-print. The album was released on compact disc in Europe in 2008.
