O’s Notes: Back in 1963 Etta recorded one of the greatest live blues albums ever, Etta James Rocks the House. Almost 40 years later she’s Burnin’ Down the House! She’s still got it, the energy to whip the audience into a frenzy and make them feel the heat and ice cold blues. These are true blues, live with the classic elements: guitar, the B3, pounding bass and Etta belting out the lyrics,… It’s all there!
