The Essential Etta James

In memory of Etta James, who passed away yesterday at the age of 73, I dug deeper into her repertoire and found this gem:

That song is included in the track listing of a great CD collection I have called The Essential Etta James, which includes original masters of 44 Chess Records songs, including some previously unreleased works.  Here is a track listing:
