Happy Birthday Etta James!!

One of the most smooth vocalists we know, Miss Etta James was born today in LA in 1938. Most known for hits such as “At Last,” “I’d Rather Go Blind,” “Something’s Got a Hold on Me” and “Tell Mama” she crossed many genres including blues, R&B, soul, rock and roll, jazz + gospel. Here's one of the funkiest collaborations we could find. From The 1982 Grateful Dead NYE show, here's Etta doing her thing. Enjoy the full half hour encore!
