The Second Time Around
"Considered by many to be her best album, 1961's The Second Time Around, found Etta James performing a string of pop hits from the 1940s in an attempt to crossover to a wider audience. Songs like 1948's 'It's Too Soon to Know' (the first rock 'n' roll song ever), or 1946's 'Fool That I Am' (covered by Adele in 2009), were both brought to life again here by James. The album's biggest hit however, was 1929's 'Don't Cry Baby,' first recorded by the empress of the blues, and James' idol, Bessie Smith." 180 gram vinyl. Comes with a CD of the album.
