Heart & Soul A Retrospective

Heart & Soul A Retrospective by Etta James
Released: Oct 2011
Label: Hip-O Select
If you only know Etta James from the pop standard "At Last," then Heart & Soul is essential listening. It's remarkable how she's adopted styles over the decades, from a brief stint as "Miss Pitiful" -- the female answer to Otis Redding -- to machine-gun funk (the incredible "You Got It") to modern blues, like on the effective cover of Elmore James' "The Sky Is Crying" and the previously unreleased "Ashes By Now." No matter the sound, James made her mark with an expressive voice and forceful presence, and Heart & Soul is like reading a biography on an incredible career.
