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.

In our re-releases it is our aim to faithfully reproduce the original intentions of the musicians and recording engineers which, however, could not be realised at the time due to technical limitations.From Janis Joplin to Beyonce, her expressive and guttural style has been imitated, but never matched.

I don't think they needed to make the vinyl blue but is is a heavyweight 180 grams, which helps avoid any warping over time.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. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Yes, sometimes the album is so intense that it can be taken only one side at a time, but the sensational feeling one gets rolling off into the morning sun with Etta James on the car stereo, is pure satisfaction.

Speakers Corner wishes to make clear that it produces lacquers using only original master tapes and an entirely analogue cutting system. 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.

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.

Faithfulness to the original is our top priority, not the interpretation of the original: there is no such thing as a “Speakers Corner Sound”. Jackpot Records is honored to release this momentous record, with the original album artwork and 4 bonus tracks.
