R.I.P. Etta James

The first dance of how many marriages?




It’s actually uncharacteristic Etta, with the strings and all, but it’s got her wonderful bluesy twist.

Great artists transform the mundane.

Guess what - this made the national news on TV in the UK.

Quite rightly.

Right across the media in the UK. Well loved over here with people of a certain age.
Glorious voice.

Phil. I'm glad she was popular over there...even before touring with the Stones, I'd guess.

Alan, "people of a certain age" is right, I suppose, though it ought to be "any sentient human."

Cheers, guys.
