Etta James – Deep In The Night (Pure Pleasure)

Condition: Brand New
Ships from: Melbourne


This masterpiece, produced by Jerry Wexler and originally published by Warners Brothers in 1978, received little applause at the time. Etta James is here in a stunning vocal condition, listening to a compilation of great material, in which James can fully unfold her tremendous interpretive abilities.

The band that brought together the cream of Los Angeles' hottest session musicians of the late seventies (Cornell Dupree, Jeff Porcaro, Chuck Rainey, Plas Johnson, Jim Horn) plays simply and emotionally, resulting in a modern R&B classic. The record is full of highlights, but special attention should be given to James' interpretations of "Only Women Bleed" and "Take It to the Limit", originally an Eagles piece.

"Deep In The Night" - Etta James (voc); Plas Johnson, Jim Horn (sax); Larry Carlton, Cornell Dupree, Brian Ray (g); Keith Johnson (el-p); Richard Tee (p); Chuck Rainey (b); Tom Roady (perc); Jeff Porcaro (dr); and others


"Great. Pure Pleasure and Remastermind Ray Staff have heard of the former Warner production a full-dynamic Reissue made." (Good Times, April / May 2015)
