1981 Aretha Franklin – Love All The Hurt Away

Love All The Hurt Away is an Aretha Franklin album, the singer’s sophomore release for Arista Records.

Despite strong reviews, it was a sales disappointment, topping off at approximately 250,000 copies. Aretha’s cover version of Sam & Dave’s classic hit “Hold On! I’m Coming” won Franklin her 11th Grammy Award in the Best R&B Vocal Performance, Female category. It was her first Grammy win since 1974. The album was reissued on CD in 2012 by Cherry Red Records and included 3 bonus tracks.
