About this copy: This copy of Knew You Were Waiting is a 2021 U.S. release on the Arista/Legacy label; it’s an updated version of an album that was originally released in 2012 with a revised track lineup.
As the album is still sealed, the records are presumably new and unplayed.
The wrap is fully intact with no rips, tears, or holes. There is a hype sticker on the wrap that says “Exclusive Marbled Turquoise Vinyl.”
A nice copy of a pretty good set.
Background: Originally released in 2012 as Knew You Were Waiting (The Best of Aretha Franklin 1980-1998), this set is a double compilation album by Aretha Franklin.
The album did not chart.
Legacy’s Knew You Were Waiting: The Best of Aretha Franklin 1980-1998 is the first serious attempt at chronicling Aretha’s RCA and Arista recordings since her stint at the label wrapped up. In between 1994’s Greatest Hits (1980-1994) and this 2012 collection, there was 2003’s Platinum & Gold, released as part of BMG’s ongoing new millennium midline series, which hit the high points but also shoehorned in “Respect” and “Think,” two classics that don’t fit in this context even when placed at the beginning of the collection. Knew You Were Waiting never attempts to disguise itself as something other than a retrospective of the Queen’s last act and, by doing so, it makes a convincing case that Aretha’s ’80s work was pretty strong on its own merits.
