im etta james

RIP soul queen Etta James (73) who’d been taken into hospital, suffering from leukemia. Legendary for her recordings on Chess, she had recently released what had been announced as her last  album on Verve Forecast: The Dreamer (2011-11-08) – before that she was on RCA Victor. On the reissue front, there’s just been a box set on Hip-O Select: Heart & Soul – A Retrospective(2011-10), while Kent / Ace have equally launched a number of reissues with bonus tracks viz. Call My NameandLosers Weepers“. More on Etta in my next post!
