For over a half a century, Etta James all but defined the role of the quintessential rhythm & blues vocalist. A musical force and a major hit-maker, the Matriarch of the Blues was inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993 and both the Rhythm and Blues Hall of Fame and Rockabilly Hall Of Fame in 2001. Throughout her career, James created a remarkably deep and diverse catalog of R&B, blues, soul, pop and jazz recordings influencing a wide range of artists along the way. 1992's The Right Time features production by Jerry Wexler and legendary support from the likes of Steve Cropper (guitar), Lucky Peterson (organ, guitar) and Steve Winwood (vocals). Etta is in full command of the material here and performs standouts like "Love and Happiness," "Ninety and a Half (Won't Do)," "Night Time Is the Right Time" and "Down Home Blues" with unmatched conviction.
