Etta James -Live as I can get
booknblueslady | Woodland, CA United States | 01/06/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Having never seen Etta James live, I am thrilled to have in my possession her cd Live from San Francisco and I play it often. I love the live vitality that this recording displays. Until hearing Etta's version of "Take it to the limit" I wouldn't have believed that the Eagles wrote anything close to a blues song. Her version is fabulous. Etta also does wonderful versions of such classics as "I just want to make love to you", 'Baby What you Want me To Do' and "Tell Mama". I recommend this cd for capturing the spirit of a live Etta James performance."

"Those of you who might be scared off by Etta's growl on the first song, stay on the ride. Etta does some extremely controlled singing on here too - almost as good as on "Etta James Rocks The House". One major improvement over that record is the TIGHT band backing her here. No missed chord changes, etc. The drummer is one of the best in the business, whoever he is - understated but effective. The entire band just cooks. Buy the dang record already!"
Absolutely the best I've ever heard her - not to be missed

"From the opening track, you know you have hit upon something unlike any other Etta James recording. She did this one herself and was about as comfortable as any singer has ever been. Every track belongs, there are no 'throw aways' on the entire album. The band is cookin' and the very end when the audience is chanting 'Etta - Etta - Etta' you just want to join in and scream her name too. I wish there were more like this out there. "I'd Rather Be Blind" is the best version she ever did. and "Sugar On The Floor" makes you want to cry!"
