Full Show Friday: Etta James Live in Montreux 1975

We search the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and post them to the site weekly, come back every seven days to help us celebrate Full Show Friday's. These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can...As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...Etta James!

This months focus in our ongoing Masters series are The Blues.

How can we not start this off with one of the best blues/rock/.r&b singers ever to grace this planet. The Queen of the Blues Etta James is getting our monthly focus started with a 1975 show heavy on the funky stuff and overalls.

Shaking her ass and being her bad-self James is dominant on stage growling (quacking?!) and singing with the best of them as her band runs through five songs, letting Etta shine as much as she'd like too.

There is a groovy greatness to this set (John Paul Jones on bass helps) and whenever you can hear the best sing her signature song, a set closing "I'd Rather Go Blind", you know it is going to be a hell of run. Pro shot, pro sound full set list below with timing and band information. Enjoy:
