Etta James Burnin' Down The House Double LP on 180g black vinyl. Veteran soul/blues singer Etta James was only 16 when, in 1954, she made her first recordings for Modern records. She was 63 when Burnin’ Down The House was recorded at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, CA, in December 2001 -- and it is obvious that vocally, she didn’t lose anything along the way. Backed by a tight and rock-solid band, James demonstrates that her big, full voice lost none of its richness between 1954 and 2001. The Los Angeles native sounds as vital as ever, and she has no problem going that extra mile on gutsy performances of “Something’s Got a Hold on Me,” “I’d Rather Go Blind,” “At Last,” and other hits. For the most part, this is a soul concert; however, James makes a triumphant detour into electric urban blues on “I Just Want to Make Love to You” and B.B. King’s “Rock Me, Baby.” The album contains some unlikely medleys; “I Just Want to Make Love to You” is successfully combined with Steppenwolf’s “Born to Be Wild,” and even more intriguing is her ability to unite the standard “My Funny Valentine” with two Al Green’s ‘70s hits, “Love and Happiness” and “Take Me to the River”. In her own words; “...enjoy this live performance, it’s fiery, bluesy and jazzy, it’s Etta live burning the house down with soul ...” Burnin’ Down The House is now available on vinyl for the first time. The 2LP package contains an insert. Music On Vinyl LP
Etta James Love's Been Rough On Me LP on 180g black vinyl. Love’s Been Rough On Me is a 1997 album by the Matriarch of R&B, Etta James. Her versatility and powerful voice bridged the gap between rhythm and blues and rock and roll. All the songs on the album sounds fresh and she really can rock in these blues influenced country songs. It just comes straight out of her heart when she’s singing about pain and the things she regrets. It’s one those wonderful examples of an album from an artist who has been active in the music scene for many years. The album shows Etta James at her best, still blending multiple styles to one effective sound. Love’s Been Rough On Me is available on vinyl for the first time. Music On Vinyl LP
