Aretha Franklin had so many classic hits in the 1960s that one may not even bother to investigate her career in the decades that followed. But that would be a mistake, as Lady Soul continued to release quality material that lit up the charts in the 1980s. Jump To It was released in 1982—the same year Michael Jackson released Thriller, Prince released 1999 and former label mate Marvin Gaye released Midnight Love. It's not an essential album, but it did hit number one and so did the nearly seven minute title track, which was written by Luther Vandross.
