"So Damn Happy" is the thirty-eighth studio album by American singer Aretha Franklin. Her first studio album since her Gold-certified "A Rose Is Still a Rose" in 1998. The album was nominated for the 2004 Grammy Award for Best R&B Album. "Wonderful" won for Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance. Aretha Franklin released only two new albums in the 1990s, but 2003 saw a flurry of activity, with Franklin putting out both the gospel album One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism and this secular R&B album. Her voice sounds as vibrant as ever, and most of the songs have a joyful feel that's no doubt influenced by the depth of Franklin's faith.

Aretha Franklin scored some hits with this early- '80s album and managed to make concessions to urban contemporary tastes without totally distorting her classic soul sound. While it's certainly not in the class of past recordings, the title cut gave Franklin her first number one of the '80s, and "Love Me Right" was a decent follow-up.

A good anthology that covers various album cuts, B-sides, and assorted material in a jazz vein that Aretha cut for Columbia. It's great to hear her underrated piano playing given some more space, and Columbia should really reissue her Dinah Washington tribute album, from which they pulled a couple of these songs. Aretha wasn't a jazz vocalist from the standpoint of approach or inspiration, but she really can sing anything and showed it on these cuts, even if they weren't, for the most part, hits.

Even if Ruth Brown never had the success that some other artists from her environment achieved, without their hits, Atlantic Records would never have been able to support artists like Otis Redding and later Aretha Franklin to such an extent that they became world stars. Still, she remains a legend in the world of rhythm and blues, influencing a lot of successful artists through her songs.

"Greatest Hits (1980-1994)" is the RIAA Platinum-certified 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, nor were either of her duets with Elton John and 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.
