"First of all I there is nothing wrong with Etta's performance and vocal quality on this strange recording. This CD includes 9 songs(Respect yourself, I'd Rather Go Blind, Shake Yo' Bottie, Dust Your Broom, Summer Heat, Drown in my Own Tears, Can't Turn You loose, Rock Me Baby and Stormy Monday) clocking in at just about 40 minutes. Etta sounds great and I wish the liner notes would say when this album was recorded. Who ever put together this awful package must of thought that these songs were all too long, since every song fades out before it ends. Very weird and annoying. There is also very little of Etta talking, if that is something that matters. It is suspicius that this is on a small label called Quicksilver, this album does not seem to fit into her catalog. I am not aware of her ever recording this album, but I have not read her book so I could be wrong. So in conclusion only get this poor recording if you must have everything by Etta James, the songs are good and the price is right, just as long as you know what you are getting into."
