Etta was arguably at her best when she she was hollerin' out the blues.
This 1963 live record spotlights her doing exactly that.

This is a very good sound recording from a small venue with Etta doing what she did best in her prime.Just listen to the raw vocals in the outstanding first track ('Somethin's got a hold on me') and you'd think this a babtist church not a blues concert.

The songs were recorded over 2 nights at little The New Era Club in Nashville with a tight jazz quintet (inc Vonzell Cooper on organ and Garvell Cooper on tenor sax).

Etta died this week, and for anyone wanting to know what all the fuss was about, this thrilling concert is a cracking place to start to understand the loss that music has incurred as a result.

R.I.P. Etta (25th Jan 1938 - 20 Jan 2012)

Fantastic live performance. It's in a different league from her later recordings, it's less produced and there are no soft strings. It's not pretty but it is loaded with real emotion and energy. You can hear that she is enjoying herself - feeding off the audience, improvising, singing a duet with the saxophone, growling, mewing, laughing. "You can dance if you want to" she tells the audience. If you've never heard Etta this is the one to get. The best live blues/soul album ever.

I hadn't listened to a great deal of Etta James before buying a couple of cd's recently. This album comes highly recommended and it's not hard to see why. Great atmosphere and punchy singing. Sound could do with a polish though. And I'd prefer to have Etta's voice coming through the middle of the stereo sound.

A good example of Etta James live in her early years. Recording includes audience noise which is a bit distracting but overall a good CD
