Etta James and the Roots Band: Burning Down the House (2001). This is one fabulous DVD. Etta's rendition of Born To Be Wild is incredible, and the Roots Band - superb!


Yes, it was a worthwhile experience.

I love Etta James. Queen of the blues. She works with people like Jimmie Vaughan and Bonnie Raitt a lot too.

Etta didn't get the recognition she deserved for many decades, until Bonnie Raitt, who is a champion of the blues, made it a point to record with Etta and bring Etta on tour with her and talk Etta up to the press, and now heer Etta is, I don't know, 50 or 60 some years old, finally getting big record deals, touring on her own and with Blues Festivals, and being on shows like ''Austin City Limits''.
