The TRUE Queen of Soul, Rhythm & Blues!,
This review is from: The Complete Private Music Blues Rock 'N' Soul Albums Collection (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!

I decided to buy this on the basis of your review and picked it up for £7.99 from my local HMV.

It's slightly cheaper at present from Zoverstocks, and my set's on order to accompany all my other cherished Etta James recordings on vinyl & CD!
