CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

James would go on to even greater success with later hits like "Tell Mama," but on At Last one hears the singer at her peak in a swinging and varied program of blues, R&B, and jazz standards.

Pitchfork

James didn't write "At Last"; it was written in 1941 by Mack Gordon and Harry Warren, for a musical film called Orchestra Wives—but she animated it, made it feel real. And there isn't a single moment on At Last! that doesn't feel unmistakably her own, and forever.

Great vocalists no denying that. I just found some of the songs to drag a little and be too stripped back instrementally

Don't lie to me, that her vocals aren't alluring and inviting. Etta james was a trailblazer of soul/blues and rnb. And this record doesn't get the love and recognition as so as other classics from the genre. The themes presented within the record are bare-bone but with her convictions and talented vocal chops it pulls you in.
