Product Description

* Etta James is one of the greatest-ever singers of soul and R&B, male or female.

* Her glory years were spent with Chess Records of Chicago, for whom she released 13 marvellous albums between 1960 and 1975. Curiously, fewer than half of them have ever been reissued in their entirety on CD. Kent are delighted to help rectify that shameful oversight with this first-time reissue of Etta's superb 1967 LP "Call My Name".

* This is the first of a series of CD releases for Etta's Chess albums. All will include copious bonus tracks.

* Cut in Chicago late in 1966 with renowned Windy City soul producer-songwriter Monk Higgins at the helm, "Call My Name" was very much the precursor of 1968's Muscle Shoals-recorded "Tell Mama" long-player, yet it has never been released in the CD age. The "Call My Name" album is bolstered here with a generous 12 bonus titles recorded variously in Alabama, Memphis and Chicago between 1967 and 1969.

* Every track is mastered from master tapes. Not a disc dub in sight.

* Compilation and notes by Mick Patrick.

Format: Audio CD
2011 has turned out to be a bumper year for fans of the American Soul legend Etta James. February saw the "Who's Blue" Kent compilation give us 24 elusive tracks on Chess and Cadet Records spanning 1961 to 1976 - whilst 31 October will see her even rarer 1970 album "Losers Weepers" get a long overdue sonic update (with bonus tracks). And sandwiched between those is this little peach - the first official release on CD of "Call My Name" - a criminally forgotten Cadet Records LP from 1967. Yum yum.

Fiery & soulful~Bravo Etta James! 26 Jan. 2012
By Bradly Briggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Burning passionate performances, Etta James in awesome form mid-sixties when classic "Call My Name" was recorded, masterful collection of soul-deep performances is a welcomed long overdue release from "The Queen Of Soul", greatest of the powerful soul-singers from the amazing musical sixties era and beyond...remastered to perfection, soul singing has never seen a finer moment and all of those tremendous bonus tracks are the icing on the cake. Gritty vocals & powerful passionate singing from the depths of her soul highlight the grand Diva's amazing releases from the sixties, "Call My Name" is a must-have for any serious Etta James fan or lover of classic soul music. Thankfully Kent Records from the UK know how to put these lost masterpiece works together better than anyone and liner notes in richly illustrated booklet is an engrossing treat!
Etta James left us this week but leaves behind numerous totally awesome collections such as this stunning set filled with magnificent performances...long live Etta James through amazing recordings like "Call My Name", a mesmerizing collection to be enjoyed over and over...RIP sweet soulful lady, you are loved and will forever be missed!

"...You Know Where It's At..." 8 Nov. 2011
By Mark Barry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
2011 has turned out to be a bumper year for fans of the American Soul legend Etta James. February saw the "Who's Blue" Kent compilation give us 24 elusive tracks on Chess and Cadet Records spanning 1961 to 1976 - whilst 31 October (UK) will see her even rarer 1970 album "Losers Weepers" get a long overdue sonic update (with bonus tracks). And sandwiched between those is this little peach - the first official release on CD of "Call My Name" - a criminally forgotten Cadet Records LP from 1967. Yum yum. But here are the finite details first...

UK released Monday 3 Oct 2011 - Ace Records/Kent CDKEND 360 breaks down as follows (67:59 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 12 are the US album "Call Your Name" - released 27 January 1967 on Cadet Records LP-4055 [Mono] and LPS-4055 [Stereo] - the STEREO Mix Is Used

Track 13 is a cover of the Aretha Franklin hit "Do Right Man, Do Right Woman" (written by Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham) - unreleased until "The Essential Etta James" 2CD set on Chess CHD2-9341 in 1993
Tracks 14 and 16 are "I Got You Babe" (a cover of the Sonny & Cher hit) and "I Worship The Ground You Walk On" (written by Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham) - released as the A&B-side of a 7" single on Cadet 5606 in May 1968 (CD as per 17)
Tracks 17 and 19 are "I've Gone Too Far" and "Misty" - unreleased until "Tell Mama - The Complete Muscle Shoals Sessions" CD on Chess 088 112 518-2 in 2001
Track 18 is "You Got It" - issued as the A-side of a 7" single on Cadet 5620 in September 1968 (CD as per 17)
Track 20 is a cover of the David Houston Number 1 Country hit "Almost Persuaded" - the A-side of a 7" single issued on Cadet 5630 in December 1968 (CD as per 17)
Tracks 15, 21, 22, 23 are "You Took It" [Disc 2], "Slow And Easy" [Disc 3], "The Soul Of A Man" [Disc 3] and "Light My Fire" [Disc 2] - all previously unreleased until the 3CD set "The Chess Box" on Chess 088 112 288-2 in 2000
Track 24 is a cover of the Otis Redding/Steve Cropper song "Mr. Pitiful" reworked as "Miss Pitiful" - released as the A-side of a 7" single on Cadet 5655 in 1970 (CD as per 15)
[Note: tracks 13 to 20 are MONO, 21 to 24 are STEREO]

Apart from the brassy Northern Soul feel to almost all of the tracks, the first thing that hits you full-in-the-face is the truly GORGEOUS SOUND QUALITY. Remastered by DUNCAN COWELL at Sound Mastering in London - I've sung this engineer's praises before - but he's outdone himself here. There's amazing clarity on every song - clean Stereo separation too and a huge presence on instruments - especially the brass and percussion. It's a blast from start to finish. The 12-page colour booklet is crammed with photos of 7" singles, Cash Box magazine adverts and reviews as well as superbly detailed and affectionate liner notes by noted writers and Soul lovers MALCOLM BAUMGART and MICK PATRICK. A typically classy effort...

CONTENT - die-hard Etta James fans may be slightly disappointed to see that 'all' the bonus tracks (though many are rare) have turned up on previous CD compilations as noted above. However - this is the first commercial CD release for the entire "Call My Name" album - and it's a worthwhile investment for just that alone.

Produced by legendary writers and musicians MONK HIGGINS and RALPH PARIS at the Chess Tel-Mar studios in late 1966 - highlights include "I Prefer You" and "I'm So Glad (I Found Love In You)" which were paired as a 45 in December 1967 (Chess 5552). Along with the other great writers like MAURICE DOLLISON (aka Cash McCall) and JOYCE WRENCHER, Higgins provided the lion's share of the songs - and tunes like the torch ballad "Have Faith In Me" and the mid-tempo album finisher "Nobody Loves Me" are so much better for it (lyrics above). Another player in the sessions was BILLY FOSTER whom Etta married and had a son with - he gets a co-write on the jaunty "It Must Be Your Love" and "842-3089 (Call My Name)". Cult hero and song arranger CHARLES STEPNEY is in the band too on Vibes. The cover of Curtis Mayfield's Impressions' classic "It's All Right" is perhaps too fast and a bit heavy-handed, but that's countered by the warm church Soul feel of "Do Right Woman, Do Right Man" - a highlight among the bonus tracks.

To sum up - once again Ace Records have delivered on all fronts - keeping the great lady's recorded legacy alive for future generations to savour and enjoy. A job well done.

Jamesetta Hawkins folks - accept no less.

great music, poor mix 11 Nov. 2011
By Comedy Fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It is great to finally see some of Etta James' previously unavailable Chess albums released. Almost the entire album was new to me, and it is a fantastic selection. Ace always does a good job, but while i would give this CD 5 stars for the music, i would only give it 1 star for the mix. Etta's voice is pretty much buried on the 12 original album tracks (not the case on the bonus tracks). Perhaps this is a problem with the original album, but when remastering this, couldn't they have brought out her voice better? there are a few tracks where it is hard to hear her, due to the overly loud brass.
Hopefully, Ace will be more attentive to such details in subsequent Etta releases.
