AllMusic Review by

Don't be confused by the generic title; this is a new Aretha Franklin album from 1986 and a moderately succesful one, notable for containing five R&B hits, four of which also made the pop charts: "Jumpin' Jack Flash" (produced by Keith Richards and featured in the Whoopi Goldberg movie of the same title), "Jimmy Lee" (#2 R&B), "I Knew You Were Waiting (For Me)" (a duet with George Michael that went #1 pop), "Rock-A-Lott," and "If You Need My Love Tonight" (a duet with Larry Graham). [Aretha is also available in an import release.]
