Most of Etta James’ songs are sweet, soulful tunes that highlight her warm voice (see: “At Last”). But on her Rocks The House record, Ms. James gets down (several times) over grimy, uptempo rhythms. I recently came across “Seven Day Fool”, a delightful track** from said album that’s totally drum-driven, and needless to say, very charming. I’m sure I’m a latecomer to this, but it’s here for your enjoyment nevertheless.
