The result is a timeless, highly accomplished and variegated LP from the beginning of Etta James’s lengthy discography. This one looks beautiful and despite the fact it's a digital source, obviously, it sounds very good. At Last is the Etta James album that belongs in everyone’s collection, it’s been rated by Rolling Stone as one of the Top 50 albums of all time, and though recorded back in 1961 [her first on the Chess Label], after an absence from the music scene for a few years, rocketed this brilliant woman right back to the top of the charts, where she laid out “Stormy Weather,” a jazz standard, like it had never been heard before, then flips like a pancake too hot to handle, and walks all over “I Just Want To Make Love To You,” a blues’ classic by Willie Dixon that inspired the likes of Janis Joplin, Mama Cass Eliot, and yes, even Jimi Hendrix, allowing a woman, for one of the first times in musical history, to stand toe to toe with the boys, creating a solid album of emotional classics, sung not from the heart, but from the gut, where she laces her songs with growls, airy presentations and phrasings, while never letting go of her intensity . com, the Sell on Etsy app, and the Etsy app, as well as the electricity that powers Etsy’s global offices and employees working remotely from home in the US.

The album was released on Argo Records in November of 1960 and was produced by Phil and Leonard Chess.

What makes 'At Last' a great album is not only the solid hits it contains, but also the strong variety of material throughout. Phil and Leonard Chess believed that James's voice had crossover pop potential, so with this debut album, they backed her with orchestral arrangements on many of the tracks.

In truth, "At Last" should be seen as the potent motto of a debut LP by a vocalist who had just emerged from her beginnings as a gospel singer, and had now recorded promising single songs. Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections—they may also appear in recommendations and other places.The title track's swirling strings, euphoric vocals, dainty piano stabs - it all melds together to form, not only one of soul's greatest songs, but one of the most treasured and loved of any genre. But the more carefree, candy rock ’n’ roll ("Tough Mary"), the weird and languishing song ("Girl Of My Dreams") and the stuff of finest ballads ("Stormy Weather") are all found in this highly diversified mainstream mix. The only exceptions are when existing metal parts are superior to new ones that might be cut, which includes our release of “Elvis is Back”, which was cut by Stan Ricker or several titles from our Philips Classics series, where were cut in the 1990s using original master tapes by Willem Makkee at the Emil Berliner Studios. Speakers Corner wishes to make clear that it produces lacquers using only original master tapes and an entirely analogue cutting system. Ask most musicians, and Etta James will certainly show up in their music collection, probe a bit deeper, and those same musicians will admit to Etta James’ influence, but ask the fans of these same artists, and most of them, if honest, will admit that they’ve never listened on even one Etta James song .

This pressing reproduces - with some attenuation - microphone plosives and pops that were part of a few of the original Chicago recording sessions. From Janis Joplin to Beyonce, her expressive and guttural style has been imitated, but never matched.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source from which to master: CDs, LPs, digital files and even MP3s. While the backing orchestra has that classic late 50's early 60's limited range, timbre, and ambiance which is typical of the era, Etta's voice is really well captured on most tracks, nicely revealing her power, range, and dynamics. Over the years the following engineers have been and still are working for us: Tony Hawkins, Willem Makkee, Kevin Gray, Maarten de Boer, Scott Hull, and Ray Staff, to name but a few.

But beware, this young woman (she was only 22 at the time) could also take on the sweetest forms of a melancholy ballad, such as “Stormy Weather”, and manage to achieve tenderness.

That being said, I recently had sinus surgery to deal with pressure in my ears and have since been able to hear things I previously was unable to and have noticed on repeated listenings that there are a number of moments where you can hear odd bass as if someone was blowing on a hot mic.Jackpot Records is honored to release this momentous record with the original album artwork and 4 bonus tracks (previously only available on CD). They're more audible because the bottom end seems more enhanced than in other versions I have of these recordings, so other reviews are onto an issue. In 1987, the album was released for the first time by MCA /Chess , and then digitally remastered and reissued on compact disc in 1999 with four bonus duet tracks performed with Harvey Fuqua : "My Heart Cries," "Spoonful," "It's a Crying Shame," and "If I Can't Have You. Jackpot Records is honored to release this momentous record, with the original album artwork and 4 bonus tracks.
