Etta James The Best Of Etta James 2000 FLAC


For a brief moment in the mid '50s, it seemed as if Etta James could go straight to the top, but the mantle was snatched up by Billie Holliday. Holliday became an immediate star with Nightclubbing, James took second place with Bedevilled and then lost out to Nina Simone and Bonnie Raitt with her Dreams. James soon decided she needed a change, and moved from New York City to Los Angeles, where she found a place in the music community. Her association with the new young Hollywood sound was celebrated in her landmark Chess single It Really Happened.

James emerged from the Motown stable in the mid-1960s with the Chess single Roll With Me Henry, before moving to Atlantic, where she remained until moving to Warner Brothers in the late '60s. For her first two Warner Brothers albums, she kept her successful R&B voice, giving us Otis, Watermelon Man and I Cant Help Myself (Im Lonely) and then delivering Spinning Wheel in 1969, a song which was to be included in the soundtrack for the film The Wild One. I bought the record because I saw the movie and loved the songs. But I didnt think they fit the picture, James told Billboard in 1967.
