Etta James live at the Chicago Blues Festival, Grant Park on June 7th, 1985. Etta James needs no introduction to lovers of soul, blues, and R&B. Her long career began way back in the 1950s, and she was a legend by the age of 21. Thereafter she experimented with funk and rock, and toured with the Rolling Stones in 1978, but sank into drug addiction and alcoholism. Originally broadcast on WXRT-FM, this superb set captures her on terrific form, performing a selection of her best-loved songs in front of a delighted crowd. The entire original broadcast is presented here, professionally re-mastered, together with background liner notes and rare archival photos.
