Etta James: Dingwalls, London

Cliff White, New Musical Express, 22 July 1978

THEY PROBABLY don't realise it but The Who once dedicated an album to Etta James. Meaty, Beaty, Big And Bouncy it was called, and by golly she is. Soulful too. And ample-thigh deep in the blues. A rock 'n' rolling, gut-wailing, male-crushing, fun-loving soul sister of such dynamic presence.
