Tell Mama

Etta James


Chicago singer Etta James hooked up with the Muscle Shoals rhythm section in 1968 and produced this Southern soul classic. The title track is just pure high-octane sixties soul energy, followed by her gorgeous take on classic torch song ‘I’d Rather Go Blind,’ and the rest of the album moves similarly between funky countrified up-tempo tracks, unembellished bluesy soul and killer ballads.
