Etta James - Seven Day Fool - Argo

60s SoulPosted by Martin Fri, February 20, 2009 07:39:28

This has been a firm favorite at Soulville nights for some time now, a perfect way to start the weekend!

Jamesetta Hawkins is a true veteran of the music industry. She first got into recording way back in the fifties when she hooked up with Johnny Otis and his band at Modern records in Los Angeles. Otis changed her stagename to Etta James and also gave her the nickname "Peaches". A long and enduring career has since followed, with both ups and downs. Etta has battled and won over serious drug addiction and is today still a vivid performer at different festivals around the world and is still releasing records. This particular single came out on the Chicago based Chess records subsidary Argo in 1961.

"Seven Day Fool"
