Tell Mama is an album so powerful that it nearly overwhelms the senses. By 1967, when Etta James traveled from Chicago to Muscle Shoals, Alabama’s Fame Studio, she was already a veteran entertainer, a master of gritty, house rocking blues shouters and slow burning ballads like the immortal “At Last”. But producer Rick Hall, and Fame’s incomparable studio musicians brought out a side of Etta that had not previously made it to record. Tell Mama presents us with a definitive portrait of Etta James, the deep soul shouter. Tracks like the sweat stained groover “My Mother In Law” and the frenetic title track prove that Etta could flow over a southern groove as effortlessly as her contemporaries in Memphis and New Orleans, while stunning ballads like the slow stepping “The Love of My Man” and the sorrowful “I’d Rather Go Blind” rival anything Aretha ever put to wax in their sheer emotional power.
