Though she had no major hit songs, Aretha's six years with Columbia Records had established her reputation as a talented singer. When other record labels heard that her six-year Columbia contract was nearing its end, she began getting offers. Aretha was most interested in Atlantic Records. Atlantic was a much smaller company than Columbia, but Aretha knew that might help her in the end.
