Title: Second Time Around
Product Type: VINYL LP

EU-only 180 gm vinyl LP pressing including two bonus tracks plus digital download. This quintessential edition includes Etta James' sensational second LP The Second Time Around, which was originally released in 1961. It has been long unavailable on vinyl until now. Etta was just 22 when she made the recordings for this long play, but she had already established herself as a youthful belter of spirited R&B numbers. Just as they had done on her debut album, producers Phil and Leonard Chess added orchestral strings arranged and conducted by Riley Hampton to accompany James on her second LP. This would earn her pop crossover appeal. In addition to the original masterpiece, this WaxTime collector's item includes 2 bonus tracks from the same period - both are duets with Harvey Fuqua: "If I Can't Have You" and the well known "Spoonful" (a blues song written by Willie Dixon that was first recorded by Howlin' Wolf in 1960). Both tunes were originally released as singles by James and Fuqua on the Chess label.
