Live At Montreux 1975-1993 (CD) by Etta James

Live At Montreux 1975-1993 (CD)

Etta James made many appearances at the Montreux Jazz Festival across her long and distinguished career from first concert in 1975 through to her last in 2008. This CD brings together the best performances from the first 20 years of her association with the festival when she was at her absolute peak. It features many of her best loved tracks and songs that she is particularly associated with. Etta James was one of the most respected performers of her generation.

In a career stretching from the fifties to this year she was inducted into the Rock’n’Roll Hall Of Fame and the Blues Hall Of Fame, won 3 Grammys and received many more nominations and was named Female Blues Artist Of The Year on no less than 14 occasions. Etta James sadly passed away after a long illness in January 2012 and this CD is a fitting tribute to one of the greatest female vocalists of the 20th century.

First time any of these performances have been made available.

Will be followed by a DVD and Blu-Ray release of Etta James at Montreux in August.

Includes the classics: ‘I Just Wanna Make Love To You’, ‘W.O.M.A.N’, ‘At Last’, ‘Come To Mama’, ‘Dust My Broom’ and more.
