iTunes Review

Etta James: Love Songs compiles a collection of songs conducive to slow-dancing and making out. Starting with the silky “At Last,” this near-perfect collage eschews the chart hits for amorous themes culled mostly from James’ ‘60s tenure on Argo and Chess Records. “A Sunday Kind of Love” hits home for anyone who is partial to sleeping in on the Sabbath with a significant other before strolling outdoors and enjoying the day together. The sweeping strings on “My Dearest Darling” smoothly contrast a brassy bass horn as James professes an undying love for her muse with the kind of fiery passion found on Otis Redding’s best recordings. The sultry “If I Can’t Have You” is a powerful duet with Harvey Fuqua that boasts bordello-parlor piano and a classic striptease-sounding chorus that gets steamy on the harmonies. Anyone who has ever loved the Association’s hit “Never My Love” deserves to dig into this previously unreleased version of the Addrisi Brothers’ classic, recorded by James in the early ‘70s.

Etta James is such an amazing singer and sings with such amazing talent, that all generations can enjoy her (or maybe im an odd 12 year old :p)

I absolutely love all of Etta's music. You can't get any better than this. It's simple, classic, and it's completely sets me at ease. Most music from this era tops nearly all of the new aspiring artists of today. I. Love. It.

Love her! Wonderful voice so beautiful! Every song showcases her amazing powerful voice!

Few female R&B stars enjoyed the kind of consistent acclaim Etta James received throughout a career that spanned six decades; the celebrated producer Jerry Wexler once called her "the greatest of all modern blues singers," and she recorded a number of enduring hits, including "At Last," "Tell Mama," "I'd Rather Go Blind," and "All I Could Do Was Cry." At the same time, despite possessing one of the most powerful voices in music, James only belatedly gained the attention of the mainstream audience,...
