While several best-ofs from Etta James' Chess period have been available over the years — with the two-disc, 44-track Essential Etta James at the top of the list in giving the big picture — this 20-track collection sweats that bigger picture down to bare essentials. For those wishing to finally sample Etta's classic period at Chess without opening the wallet for box set expense, this single-disc retrospective will fill the bill quite nicely. Featuring 20 of the tracks that appear on the double-disc Essential anthology without anything literally essential left off, this scintillating little disc now officially becomes the one-stop, first-time purchase in connecting with the emotional greatness inherent in Etta's siren song. There's plenty more after this to discover, but this is absolutely where you start.
Well worth the money
This is a great collection for the price. She is fantastic. You won't regret buying this album.
C'est tellement bon! Une très bonne compilation, ça s'écoute n'importe quand n'importe où.
Best Voice Ever
