• Etta JAMES - Tough Woman - The Early Recordings 1955-1960

Etta James is no shrinking violet and this is the first CD release for this iconic artist that covers her earliest recordings with her classic Chess recordings.

Disc 1 features her '50s Los Angeles rock and blues repertoire, including the No. 1 hit 'Roll With Me Henry'. Disc 2 presents her earliest Chicago recordings for the Chess label, including her version of 'I Just Want To Make Love To You'. Also on disc 2 is her complete 'At Last' album which is considered one of early '60s most important R&B albums.

Etta James is every inch a no-holds-barred performer. Mix that in with her troubled past and the undoubted fact that she is a true R&B pioneer, she has certainly paid her dues! If you are not one of the initiated then prepare to be shocked!
