Etta James impresiona con su último disco “The Dreamer”, compendio de maravillosas versiones, Ray Charles, Otis Redding, Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland o Guns N’ Roses. Continúa su lucha contra la maldita leucemia.
Etta James and her new album “The Dreamer”‘s out, for this powerful last stand, James concentrates on soul and blues, with a strong streak of country rock. The songbook is excitingly varied, including gems from Ray Charles, Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland and even Guns N’ Roses, though James ages their Welcome to the Jungle into a retro reinterpretation that’s more directly Rolling Stones-style. There’s also an Otis Redding substance-abuse sequence, starting with his Champagne & Wine, then moving on to Cigarettes & Coffee.
