Etta James (3Rd Album) + Sings for Lovers
Warning: Last items in stock!
2 LPs ON 1 CD + 7 BONUS TRACKS
Etta James was one of the greatest R&B singers of all time, with an incredibly soulful voice and an amazing ability to interpret oldfashioned yet timeless melodies. She sang with unmatched emotional hunger and a pain that can chill the listener.
This quintessential Soul Jam release includes two of her finest (and long unavailable) albums from 1962: her self-titled third LP Etta James, and the follow-up record Sings for Lovers (which Etta herself stated was her favorite album). They were both originally released by the Argo label (a subsidiary of Chess Records). Fusingrhythm & blues with pop and soul, these two outstanding LPs have been remastered and packaged together in this very special collector’s edition, which also includes 7 bonus tracks from the same period (gathering a variety of hard to find sides recorded by James between 1960 and 1962).
ETTA JAMES, lead vocals on all tracks, plus:
The Riley Hampton Orchestra.
Harvey Fuqua (duet vocals on tracks 5 & 10).
Arranged and conducted by Riley Hampton.
(Except tracks 11, 12, 14, 16 & 18, arranged by Al Posponka.)
Recorded by Ron Malo at Chess Studios, Chicago, Illinois,
between 1960 and 1962.
Produced by Ralph Bass, and Leonard & Phil Chess.
