ETTA JAMES - HER BEST

[div class='content-2-col-left']

Etta's highly emotional performances sound better than ever and her range, from ballads like 'At Last', Blues like 'I Just Want to Make Love to You' and gospel rockers like 'Something's Got a Hold On Me', show an artist at the peak of her considerable powers.
