    Aretha Franklin, who has a clean bill of health, will release a deluxe box set via Columbia/Legacy. The set, titled Take a Look: Aretha Franklin Complete on Columbia, is due out on March 22nd. The 12-disc box set will include Franklin's first album, 1961's Aretha (with the Ray Bryant Combo), as well as six more original Columbia albums, complete with original art and liner notes; two CDs featuring the singer's collaborations with producers Bobby Scott and Clyde Otis; and two new CDs, including the never-released album A Bit of Soul. Those are plenty of audio treats to satisfy the consummate Aretha Franklin fan in your life.

    There also will be a DVD, Aretha '64! Live on The Steve Allen Show, and a 60-page booklet that includes newly published photographs.

    What current diva should release an album comprised solo of Aretha Franklin cover songs? Beyoncé? Nicki Minaj? Mary J. Blige?
