Liner Notes: In Memory of Etta James 1938-2012

The Wallflower (Dance with Me, Henry) – Etta James featuring Richard Berry (1955)
Born Jamesetta Hawkins, James passed away today due to complications from leukemia. She earned multiple awards and helped bridge blues music with an upstart genre called rock & roll. She was inducted into the Blues, Grammy, and Rock & Roll Halls of Fame. A true original.
