You Got It B/W Fire - Etta James

Here's a double-sided dose of funky soul pickings that never made the cut on Etta's 1968 record Tell Mama. Miss Peaches was in ripe form that year having released another commercially successful LP with several supporting singles such as Otis Redding's "Security" and her other signature song "I'd Rather Go Blind." You can also hear her supremely enjoyable reworking of Sonny & Cher's "I Got You Babe" here. All of these great non-album tracks were produced from the same Muscle Shoals recording sessions. This goes to prove one thing : back in 68' the matriarch of blues was most definitely on fire.

You Got It
