    Saw her a couple years ago at Red Rocks with BB; great show, huge loss for blues lovers.

      I would have loved to have seen her. At Last always blows me away when I hear it.

      You’re right: huge loss.

    “Sunday Kind of Love”–check it out. I think it’s even better than “At Last”.

      I have that one too as I have three of her albums. I agree that it is amazing and probably better than this one which I chose because I think it’s the one most people remember.

    She was my favorite soul singer. I think I have 20-25 of her albums.
    Sad day…

    Very sad. Saw her a few years back at the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank NJ with some friends. As I recall, she was still recovering from her gastric bypass surgery and sat for most of the show. After it was over those that lingered a bit were treated to the sight of Etta James – – in an electric wheelchair – – flying across the stage from left to right. What a round of applause THAT was! 🙂

    I have been most lucky that I have seen many legends of song – – Springsteen, Ray Charles, BB King, for starters – – and she was one of them. A huge loss.

      I am infinitely jealous at the singers you’ve heard. My list is small: Odetta, Lightfoot, PP&M, Nanci Griffith and more I just can’t remember without perusing my memory drawers.

      I love the image of the flying wheelchair!
