At Last (on CD)

At Last
by Etta James

A great CD of Etta James' classics including: "A Sunday Kind of Love," "Stormy Weather," and of course her sensational hit "At Last." Recorded in Chicago in 1960. Contains idiomatic orchestration and accompaniment patterns of the 1950s and 60s. (Triplet accompaniment strings in blues style). Some of the songs do however start to sound the same after listening to the entire CD; however, a really great listen! She certainly has a definitive sound she makes her own. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try Let's Roll, The Definitive Collection, The Essential Etta James, Blues to the Bone.] -- recommended by Jeremiah J. - Bennett Martin Public Library
