it’s been a long time

down and dirty blues
without all of the cursing
god love etta james

I was driving home from picking the wee one up at school and I heard Etta James singing At Last on the radio. It actually, literally took my breath away.

Maybe I can wean the wee-er one off of Amy Winehouse and onto Etta. It’s all fun and games until your toddler’s first words are "I don’t wanna go to rehab, no no no."

  1. Dude, I was just listening to that song yesterday. It’s been a fave of mine for a long time. Sad to say that the first time I heard it was on the Northern Exposure soundtrack ….. on cassette ….. ’cause that’s how I roll …..


  2. We adore Etta. Make sure to listen to the album that’s entirely her covers of Billie Holiday (coincidentally, a Billie album was last night’s dinner music). Double the breath-taking-ness!
