i recently discovered etta james’ first album, ‘at last!’


1.) the album cover is so great. the beehive! honey-coloured hair! dramatic earrings and eye makeup! the cursive font! SWOON
at last!

2.) etta has an incredible, rich, deep and sultry voice. i have long loved the song ‘at last’ (my mom always dedicates it to me) but i was recently at a coffeeshop and they played the full album (on vinyl, no less). oh shit. i almost fell off my chair. i would have ran out and immediately bought a record player and this album just to listen to it a hundred times in a row, if only i had space in my tiny apartment to set it up. i swear, as soon as i scale up and have a bit of space, i’m going to make it happen.

3.) it’s good music for a slow-dance in the kitchen with someone you love (or, alternately, fast-dance. whatever).

4.) check this shit out!
