Product Description

Amazon.ca

She's no stranger to the towering highs and lows of the heart, and Etta James's soaring, gospel-tinged pipes match up well with the rigors of unabashed bliss. Happily, the good people at Chess Records recognize this, and they have thoughtfully collected some of the best examples into one tidy record. Kicking off with her classic treatment of "At Last," the collection moves through the lilting strings of "My Dearest Darling" on into the expressive tones of "I Want to Be Loved (But Only by You)" with grace and emotional candor. James can be simultaneously tender and deeply honest and her ability to express the desperate joy that is the soul of love remains one of life's marvelous pleasures. --Matthew Cooke

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Etta! June 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
Buy it. Don't even hesitate. Every song is great,
the best. "At Last" gave me chills in 1958 as a young
teenager falling in love for the first time. Now, over
40 years later, I'm still getting chills every time I
listen to it. "How Do You Speak To An Angel" and "Again"
are two more that I have discovered and move me beyond
words. I love this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Soul of a Legend Feb. 6 2001
Format:Audio CD
This title just aptly describes the sheer brilliance of Miss Etta James.'' Queen of Soul '' also can be applied to the greatest singer since Mahalia Jackson, a gteat collection of torch and love songs encompassing the early sixties to early seventies.These Chess recordings were done during the turbalent years of drug addiction and a time when other artists were selling out to popular music, Etta always stayed true to her roots and the heartache she bared.Unlike Billie Holliday , Etta James vocal artistry and range never seemed to suffer through her waning drug habit,her deep melodic gospel tinged voice,bared her feelings as any lowdown blues mama could!Etta is definetly in a league of her own,as Martin Luther King once said about Mahalia Jackson,''A voice like this comes once in a millineum''! I personally would like to convey my own quote ''God blessed the Heavens with a voice like Etta''

4.0 out of 5 stars Soul Stirring June 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
Miss Peaches is her nick name huh? Well her music is certainly sweet. When I purchased this CD a few years ago, I was really in a bluesy state of mind and remembering feeling very mellow and encouraged when listening to Etta's very soulfoul voice. She is so intense on the song Trust in Me and sweet as ever on I Want to Be Loved. Her version of Someone to Watch over me will bring you to tears (it did for me anyway, music is my therapy!). I loved this Cd and have since purchased The Chess Box-a 3cd set of her greatests songs. Wonderful. I love Jamesetta...

5.0 out of 5 stars the soulful Miss Peaches Sept. 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
Etta James' big, brassy and bold voice sings some great love songs in this bluesy, R & B collection, starting with her 1961 hit of the Warren/Gordon "At Last", which is one of the standouts. Others include another hit from 1961, "Trust in Me", and an earthy, scrumptious duet with Harvey Fuqua (lead and founder of the Moonglows), "If I Can't Have You". I also like her take on the Gershwin brothers' "Someone to Watch Over Me", with Ira's terrific lyrics; I always appreciate his split phrases, like "Although he may not be the man some / girls think of as handsome"
With the exception of "Lovin' Arms" which was recorded in 1974, and the cover of The Association's "Never My Love" (1973), these recordings are from the '60s, but Etta is a classic singer, and never sounds dated. Digitally remastered, they did a good job of the audio quality, with crisp highs and nice depth. there are no liner notes in the foldout insert which only includes a song list, and the total time is 45'48.
Fondly known as Miss Peaches, one wonders if Etta's huge voice, with it's powerful, slightly abrasive top notes, would have become more famous had she not been shadowed and hindered by personal problems; Etta is a major song stylist, appealing to listeners of jazz, R & B, soul, and blues, and this is a fine compilation for fans of this splendid artist.
