2015 repress. Etta James's debut album, originally released in 1961 on the Chess subsidiary Argo Records. The album's title-track and (All I Could Do Was Cry) co-written by future Motown founder Berry Gordy both went to number two on the R&B charts, while the album itself has gone down in history as one of the great classic albums of early R&B. Bonus tracks (My Heart Cries), (Spoonful), (It's a Crying Shame), and (If I Can't Have You) are taken from two 1960 singles featuring doo-wop idol Harvey Fuqua of The Moonglows (best known for their 1954 hit Sincerely). Pressed on 180-gram vinyl, includes CD.
