Released: August 1968

The late, great Etta James had hit the skids by the late-60s, frittering away a decent career with a devastating heroin addiction – but there was enough faith in her voice to give her another go on her recovery. Working at Muscle Shoals in Alabama, James delivered 'At Last' and this, a real body blow of a standard that loses none of its emotional heft no matter how often it's covered.
