.. my love has come along
My lonely days are over
And life is like a song …
At Last Etta James
Wow, what a big, deep, soulful voice. I’ve been listening to Etta James vinyl album named Etta James: Her Greatest Sides vol. 1. There are a few songs in this album that I like, Sunday Kind Of Love, Stop The Wedding and Tell Mama but my favorite is At Last. I love her rendition of this song when her soulful voice slowly begins with lot of feelings and expressive ‘At last, my love has come along …‘. In order to appreciate her style and her singing, a vinyl record playing on a vinyl player is a must. With vinyl record, the sound is more real, more authentic and more characters to the voice and the music.
Most of people are familiar with this song because of Beyonce sang at President Obama inauguration and nothing against Beyonce, but Beyonce can’t touch Etta James with this song.
