It was during the Sixties when Etta James truly found her musical direction and made a lasting mark as a soulful pop and blues diva. Her debut album, "At Last!" (Argo Records LPS-4003), was released in late 1960 and was noted for its varied choice in music from jazz standards to blues numbers to doo-wop and rhythm & blues. At Last! ranked #119 on Rolling Stone’s list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time in 2012. Etta’s 1962 LP "Sings for Lovers" (Argo LP-4018) has been added here in its entirety as a bonus.
