When Ace last released a vinyl LP on Etta James, the CD medium was still in its infancy, Etta's career was on hiatus and she hadn't put out a new album in years. Flash forward 30 years and Etta is now regarded as one of music's most cherished icons.
Good Rockin' Mama compiles all of Etta's best up-tempo Modern tracks into a set that will prod any dancin' party into life, from her first single 'The Wallflower' (aka 'Roll With Me Henry') through to her final recording for Kent Record, '"Baby, Baby" Every Night'. All 14 tracks are classic examples of the young Etta.
It's a safe bet that anyone who plays this hot biscuit will just flip it over and play it again from start to finish when it's through. Not just good rockin', but great.
