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’.
