Rhino’s Start Your Ear Off Right Campaign is back for 2022!

Starring Irene Cara in the title role, SPARKLE told the story of the rise and fall of a Harlem girl group at the end of the 1950s. Though it was remade decades later with Whitney Houston in the lead, the film's greatest claim to fame is likely its wonderful soundtrack, a meeting of two R&B giants: Aretha Franklin and Curtis Mayfield. With Mayfield producing and writing all the material, the 1976 collection shows the Queen of Soul in all her majesty on eight songs including “Hooked on Your Love” and Top 40 hit “Something He Can Feel” (both of which would later be covered by En Vogue).Aretha Franklin was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on this day in 1987, and the gold-certified MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE SPARKLE was one of her biggest successes of the late 1970s.

Pressed for the first time since its original release in 1976 on limited Crystal Clear colour vinyl.
