Etta James ‎– The Right Time

180-gram gatefold LP, remastering by Ray Staff at Air Mastering, Lyndhurst Hall, London

For The Right Time she returns to the Muscle Shoals studio where she recorded 'Tell Mama,' this time with producer Jerry Wexler, and it's an outstanding match. She hits nary a forced or false note and is backed with a stellar band that includes saxophonist Hank Crawford, guitarist Steve Cropper and bassist Willie Weeks.

"A sign of great singers for me is how they put a stamp on songs that have been done many times". In that regard, Etta makes 'Love and Happiness' and 'Ninety and a Half Won't Do' all her own. She tears up 'The Night Time Is the Right Time' with the help of Crawford's sax. Of course she has the blues well covered, a favorite being 'Down Home Blues,' and flashes her humorous side with the trash-talking 'Wet Match'. She has an ability to hit any note without strain and with total conviction.
