Tuesday Tunes : Etta James

Again, having a soft spot for singers that has church gospel influence, I brought you At Last, a signature song from Etta James. Did you know that this song was originally produced during WW II? Well, it was written by Mack Gordon and Harry Warren for musical film Orchestra Wives in 1941. In 1960 Etta James did a cover of the song with some improvement by Riley Hampton on Warren’s melody – and thus comes At Last by Etta James we hear today.
