DOYLESTOWN, PA, April 21, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- It is inevitable that with the passage of time, society will lose its great cultural icons. The only solace is that these industry leaders have left behind a veritable treasure trove of recordings that will stand the test of time. A perfect example of this is Etta James' At Last, which has become a featured new release on SoundStageDirect.com. SoundStageDirect is an online independent record store that offers an amazing variety of vinyl reissues of all varieties of music. They also provide new recordings from contemporary artists all captured on vinyl. For many music enthusiasts, a vinyl recording is truly the only way to experience all the depth and emotion created by a talented artist like Etta James.
At Last was first recorded by Etta James in 1961 and became a seminal record in her career. The title track was what Beyonce sang during President Obama's inauguration for his first dance with his wife Michelle. Since then, many new fans of Etta James have been discovering her music. Now these same fans can experience the true sensation of listening to Etta James in the original vinyl record compilation At Last. Along with the title song, two of the album's other tracks helped land Etta on the R&B and pop charts. These were the bittersweet All I Could Do Was Cry and the popular lounge song Trust In Me. Additional tracks include the ballad Stormy Weather and the languishing Girl of My Dreams. The team at SoundStageDirect.com sums up At Last like this, "An unobtrusive background of gentle strings and chorus, so typical of the times, sensitively enhances the carefully chosen numbers, somewhere between Rhythm & Blues, Soul, and Standard Jazz. The result is a timeless, highly accomplished and variegated LP from the beginning of Etta James' lengthy discography."
There are many other music selections from the era of Etta James, including vinyl reissues from Ray Charles, Louis Prima and Dean Martin, to name just a few. These evocative recordings capture a mood and period in American history that can be relived with every listening session. SoundStageDirect.com ships within the same business day if a record is in stock. They also pack vinyl recordings in specially designed secured shipping envelopes.
