Etta James (25th Jan 1938 – 20th Jan 2012)


I'd already posted when I heard the news on Friday: but in any case this belongs better here today. 

What a voice.

RIP.

Etta James - 'A Sunday Kind Of Love' (1961)

  2. Wonderful voice. And some of the more modern (that is over the last 20 years or so) is actually really good too.

    Mondo posted a version of GunsNRoses Welcome To The Jungle on Facebook the other day though which was a bit of a head scratcher.
