I had the priviledge of being at Marla's that January night in '86 when these two L.A. giants of Jazz and Blues did their thing together; the joint was smokin'! If you don't get this, and it's companion, The Late Show, I'll never speak to any of yous again.

Such a great album featuring two perfectly complimented performers. Etta is as powerful and playful as ever while Eddie is the perrenial bluesman; all tied together in a casual and inviting blues atmosphere. Highly suggested. Etta's version of "At Last" on this album is absolutely amazing. "Misty" is a highlight as well.

Six Degrees of The Essential Nina Simone

By Will Friedwald, Contributor

It used to be easier to pretend that an album was its own perfectly self-contained artifact. The great records certainly feel that way. But albums are more permeable than solid, their motivations, executions and inspirations informed by, and often stolen from, their peers and forbearers. It all sounds awfully formal, but it's not. It's the very nature of music — of art, even. The Six Degrees features examine the relationships between classic records and five… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Recorded live at Marla’s Memory Lane Supper Club in Los Angeles, this 1986 date finds Etta James in front of a superb combo fronted by Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, with Red Holloway, Jack McDuff, and Shuggie Otis providing the supple and swinging backdrop. Vinson is featured on “Kidney Stew,” “When My Baby Left Me,” and “Railroad Porter Blues” before the turning the stage over to Etta, who provides a blistering “Something’s Got a Hold on Me” and a sultry three-song medley of “At Last,” “Trust Me,” and “Sunday Kind of Love.” The two stars duet on Percy Mayfield’s “Please Send Me Someone to Love” before Etta closes the show with strong readings of “Lover Man” and “Misty.” The small crowd’s enthusiastic response makes this a show you wish you were there for; this disc is the next best thing to it. – Cub Koda
