From one of Etta James’ earliest successes, the infectious and endlessly elegant “Something’s Got A Hold On Me,” a medley that consist of “At Last,” “Trust In Me” and “Sunday Kind of Love,” which is a fusion of highlights from the early ’60s, to the raw and emotional “I’d Rather Go Blind” and soulful horn-driven “Tell Mama.” The collection closes with “Baby What You Want Me To Do,” James’ homage to Jimmy Reed and the encore of her 1979 concert.
