Overview

Simply one of the greatest live blues albums ever captured on tape. Cut in 1963 at the New Era Club in Nashville, the set finds Etta James in stellar shape as she forcefully delivers her own "Something's Got a Hold on Me" and "Seven Day Fool" interspersed with a diet of sizzling covers ("What'd I Say," "Sweet Little Angel," "Money," "Ooh Poo Pah Doo"). The CD incarnation adds three more great titles, including an impassioned reprise of her "All I Could Do Was Cry." Guitarist David T. Walker is outstanding whenever he solos.

along w/ the 1964 recordings of Robert Night Hawk on Maxwell Street, the best live blues recordings of which I know. Very stirring and exciting every time I listen. Her band is excellent. The two Jimmy Reed tunes, "Baby What You Want Me to Do" and "Ain't That Lovin' You Baby" are the standouts.
