ETTA JAMES: "I Just Wanna Make Love To You", "Tell Mama" & "At Last"

This induction into the "RCJ MUSIC/ ART'S HONOUR ROLL SOCIETY" will be to honour the vocalist icon "Etta James", who recently passed away, which inspire's this sudden posting ... because she was bound to be in this journal's honour roll society anywayz. As far as her background ... I'll let the Wikipedia and news handle most of that.

I cant even categorize or put in a certain genre of music when it come's to her vocal's, but she is well known in the area of jazz/ R&B ... what isnt heard much though, is how much she was also a cornerstone of todayz rock music as well, she played on alot of bill's, with alot of legend's themselves, she really been around the block. But her voice has a wide range to it, and for me had a sensual touch to it as well, that could make me melt, with a style that is in it's own category ... she was as smooth as silk, or she could belt out the most upbeat edged tune's, she can cover alot, and really knew how to "throw" her range. Her personality is for real too, she know's life from every angle, she is sharp and street smart as well ... having lived the life to it's fullest ... which is heard in her vocal's clearly. Then of course making the Grammy's, "Rock & Roll Hall of Fame", etc. Thank You Much Etta!

Never heard of her, but there's a hell of a lot on music I've never heard. I'm mostly a CW and oldies fan.

Being into the "oldies" Billy, I would have figured that you heard of her ... I reckon her more popular place was in the "Doo- Wop" scene too, at least one of them, although at the same time, she didnt go mainstream too much.

We just got done watching that New York Giants @ San Francisco 49ers game .... goddamn what a game that was! I was pulling for the 49ers, being a long time old fan of their's, but the Giants beat them in overtime 20- 17, with a 31 yard field goal ... but what a tight game that was, it just had you at the edge, especially in the last quarter ... and of course NY got a huge break when that punt return touched the knee of a 49er, and was recovered by the Giant's ... that play was the biggest edge toward's the finale. Anyhow ... congrat's to the Patriot's as well for winning over the Ravens for the AFC title ... this East Coast SuperBowl 46 in Indy really should be tight too ... both these team's are kicking ass, but I would prematurely guess that New England may be the favourite.

Thanx for your input Billy ....

Although my first choice this year, would have been the Green Bay Packers for the NFC ... they just had an outstanding regular season and it was sad seeing them get taken out in the first play- off round's after such.
