Product Description

Rightfully acknowledged as an icon of rhythm and blues, Etta James could, and did, sing an extraordinarily wide variety of music with equal amounts of heart and soul.
The 7-CD set, Etta James: The Complete Blues, Rock N Soul Private Music Albums Collection, covers 6 of the 12 acclaimed recordings she made for Private Music and RCA between 1997 and 2006. The emphasis in these albums is on the more earthy blues, R&B, rock and occasional country material that this vocal dynamo put her inimitable stamp on.
At the time of her passing in 2012, after a career that stretched more than a half-century, James was acclaimed as the musical titan she surely was. A Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame member and a three-time Grammy winner who also received a Grammy Hall Of Fame and Lifetime Achievement Award, James was an inspiration for generations of musicians, as demonstrated by the 2012 Grammy Awards tribute to her.
Stocked with blues staples,R&B standards, and interpretations of rock tunes from the likes of The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and The Eagles, The Complete Blues, Rock 'N’ Soul Private Music Albums Collection also includes lives versions of such James's classics as ‘Tell Mama’, ‘Something’s Got A Hold On Me’, ‘I'd Rather Go Blind’ and her signature song and much-loved favourite ‘At Last’.

    Format: Audio CD
    Etta James, in my opinion was the TRUE Queen of Soul, Rhythm & Blues. (Sorry Aretha, but you were great in the 60s, but your 70s and 80s disco was pretty bad. And your voice just got thinner in the 90s) Etta James distinctive soulful voice stayed intact right up to the end, this is evident in her final masterpiece The Dreamer.
    This box set contains her more bluesy and rock albums from the Private Records era.
    Now I wasn't expecting to be so blown away by this box set, it's not supposed to be her best period. But all the albums are flawless and continue Etta's soul journey from the 60s.
    These are pure class recordings, I highly recommend this set to any fans of Etta, or lovers of Soul, Blues, Rock and Rhythm & Blues music.
    And I hear this will be followed by a set of her Jazz and Torch Song albums from Private Records next, I can't wait for that!
    Buy this now if you want to feed you soul, it's great value for the number of albums you get and the packaging is great. You get each cd album in a mini record sleeve replica. Not only does it look great but it takes up less space on the shelf than jewel cases.
    This is important if you are a true music lover and have hundreds of cds!

    6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Mark Barry HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 15 Feb. 2014
    Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
    This dinky 7CD mini box set gathers together an unfairly overlooked period of Etta James’ extraordinary catalogue – the late Nineties and beyond. It features the CD orientated PRIVATE STOCK label and a string of albums considering by many fans as a ‘second coming’ for her. Here’s the gin-soaked whiskey-guzzling tnt-smoking bluesy details:

    Originally released 2012 "The Complete Private Stock Blues, Rock 'n' Soul Albums Collection" is on Sony Music/Legacy 886919058892 and breaks down as follows:

    1. Love's Been Rough On Me (1997, 10 tracks, 41:11 minutes)
    2. Life Love & The Blues (1998, 12 tracks, 59:38 minutes)
    3. Matriarch Of The Blues (2000, 12 tracks, 64:25 minutes)
    4. Burnin' Down The House (2002 Live Set, 12 tracks, 72:44 minutes)
    5. Let’s Roll (2003, 12 tracks, 58:35 minutes)
    6. Blues To The Bone (2004, 12 tracks, 47:57 minutes)
    7. (Bonus Disc) Live From San Francisco (1994, 8 Tracks, 42:15 minutes)

    The 5” mini repro sleeves are all single issues with white borders and no inners. All the details are transferred into the info-packed 24-page booklet which features album-by-album annotation and a hugely affectionate 3-page essay on the great lady by renowned Soul/Jazz Writer and Presenter BOB PORTER. There is no remastering in this set – no need – all were beautifully produced in the first place with top class guitarists, keyboard players and horn sections pumping up every single track.

    If I was to describe the guitar playing (“Love It Or Leave It Alone” is a good example) – think Gary Moore circa “Still Got The Blues” accompanied by a powerhouse rhythm section and Etta letting it rip on the vocals – you get the idea.
