Editorial Reviews

This is the second in our series of CD reissues of Etta James' Chess albums. All will include copious bonus tracks.

Etta is one of the greatest-ever singers of soul and R&B, male or female. She spent her glory years at Chess Records of Chicago, releasing 13 marvelous LPs on the company's Argo, Cadet and Chess imprints between 1960 and 1975. Curiously, fewer than half of those long-players have ever been reissued in their entirety on CD.

We began our program to help remedy that shameful oversight earlier this year with Who's Blue?, a collection of largely new-to-CD album tracks and B-sides, and last month marked the release of Etta's 1967 LP Call My Name. Here we turn our attention to her superb Losers Weepers set from 1970.

Recorded in Los Angeles with renowned arranger Gene Barge and veteran producer Ralph Bass at the controls, the original 11-track album is bolstered with a generous 11 bonus titles cut variously in Hollywood, Chicago and Philadelphia between 1969 and 1973. Compilation and notes by Mick Patrick and Dennis Garvey.

Format: Audio CD
2011 has turned out to be a bumper year for fans of the American Soul legend Etta James. February saw the "Who's Blue" Kent Soul compilation give us 24 elusive tracks on Chess and Cadet Records spanning 1961 to 1976 - whilst 31 October saw the first official release on CD of "Call My Name" - a criminally forgotten Cadet Records LP from 1967. I've reviewed both of them. And now this - another exclusive! A first-time-on-CD outing for a rare vinyl LP from 1970 with copious amounts of bonus tracks relevant to the period. Here are the details...

UK released Monday 31 Oct 2011 (15 Nov USA) - Ace Records/Kent Soul CDKEND 361 breaks down as follows (74:57 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 11 are the Stereo LP "Losers Weepers" - released December 1970 in the USA on Cadet Records LPS-847

Track 12 is "The Love Of My Man" - a 1970 USA 7" single on Chess 2100 [A]
Tracks 13 to 17 are "Tighten Up Your Own Thing", "Quick Reaction And Satisfied", "Nothing From Nothing Leaves Nothing", "Sound Of Love" and "The Man I Love" are all from the album "Funk" - released January 1970 in the USA on Cadet Records LPS-847
Track 18 is "I Found A Love" - a 1972 USA 7" single on Chess 2125 [A]
Tracks 19 and 20 are "W.O.M.A.N." and "Tell It Like It Is" - are the A&B Sides of a 1972 USA 7" single on Chess 2128
Track 21 is "Never My Love" - a 1973 recording Previously Unreleased until the 2000 3CD set "The Chess Box"
Track 22 is "I Never Meant To Love Him" - a 1973 recording Previously Unreleased until the 1993 2CD set "The Essential Etta James"
[Note: Tracks 12, 14, 17 to 20 are MONO - all others are STEREO]

This CD release will allow fans to sequence almost all of the 7 x 7" singles released off and around the 2 x 1970 albums - "Losers Weepers" and "Funk":

Throughout the great musical sixties, Etta James established herself as "The Queen Of Soul" and those who were lucky to see the grand Diva live knew this title was well-earned as Etta James always gave her passionate all in live concert performances...early seventies "Losers Weepers" started off the great singer in peak form, had music been in a better place at this time than the start of bland singer/songwriters, this sublime masterful collection of varied amazing performances would have yielded numerous huge hits and deserved "Grammy Awards". Listening to remarkable Duke Ellington "I've Got It Bad And That Ain't Good" glorious performance or stunning tour-de-force of evergreen "For All We Know", easy to see why decades later Etta James went on to great acclaim singing classic standards, finally winning long overdue "Grammy Awards" which should have happened here. Thankfully Kent Records in UK know how to put together classic masterworks as "Losers Weepers", crystal-clear sound is superb, informative booklet & incredible mix of bonus tracks a nice plus to a first rate release. Sadly Etta James is gone but with great releases as this her memorable works will be enjoyed and create legions of new fans for years to come...any lover of great singers will enjoy this tremendous work that becomes greater with each repeated listen...sublime music as good as it gets, RIP sweet soulful lady and will love you forever, thank you dear Etta for years of amazing performances and great music that will live on and on...

I beg to differ with the Amazon reviewer who sang the praises of the so called engineer who mixed this CD for Kent Records. First I want to make it clear that all of the music on this CD is great, it is the music mixes for this CD that are absolutely awful. The mixes are noisy, so noisy that I can hear the gain riding hiss. Two of the songs are not even mixed at all. Song #14. "Quick Reaction', and song #17 'The Man I Love'. Song #17 is from the album 'Etta James Sings Funk' (a phonograph record that I own) on which the drums and the piano are prominent and are integral components of the musical arrangement. If this Duncan Cowell person who is supposed to be responsible for the mixing and engineering of this CD had the nerve to mix the piano and drums completely out in this manner, then he either completely forgot to mix this song or he is a novice engineer tampering with the music. Profesional engineers are not hired to rearrange the music, they are hired to electronically capture the music as accurately as possible then balance the sounds so that all of the instruments can be heard. I have a large number of Kent recordings in my collection and they are mostly first rate. This debacle is an all time low for Kent Records of England. Two stars for the music, no stars for the technician.
