Artist : Etta James
Title : Deep In The Night
Originally released on Warners Brothers to scant acclaim in 1978, this Jerry Wexler-produced masterpiece finds James in astounding voice with a batch of great material to apply her massive interpretive powers to. The band, including the cream of the late-'70s Los Angeles session hot-shots (Cornell Dupree, Jeff Porcaro, Chuck Rainey, Plas Johnson, Jim Horn), lays it down soulful and simple and the result is a modern-day R&B classic. Highlights abound throughout, but special attention must be turned to James' takes on "Only Women Bleed" and the Eagles' "Take It to the Limit." By Cub Koda/AMG

Damn, I miss Etta: possibly the least understood, most underappreciated singer of her era – maybe tied with Nina Simone – Etta deserved to be as renowned as Aretha Franklin..but her own demons mitigated against huge success early in her career. Bad luck played its part in this, too, as this LP from 1978 should have done for her what The Healer did for John Lee Hooker. Stellar backing ensured all was peerless: Chuck Rainey, Merry Clayton, Jeff Porcaro, Cornell Duoree, Larry Carlton, Richard Tee- at least two of whom worked on Howard Tate’s masterpiece debut on Verve. For one track alone this will always be a fave: her interpretation of The Eagels’ ‘Take It To The Limit’. Astounding! KK Sound Quality 94/100
hi-fi+ July 2015 by Dennis Davis
Etta James kept belting out her rhythm and blues and rock and roll music, touring constantly, right up to the time she passed away in early 2012. Deep In The Night was released during what now seems like a bizarre twenty-year lull in her popularity. Her releases on the Chess/Argo label throughout the 1960's cemented her reputation, but she worked in comparative obscurity for the following two decades until she was `rediscovered` in 1988. That obscurity should not detract from the high quality of the recordings she produced in the 1970s and 1980s- especially this Jerry Wexler produced set from Warner Brothers.
More Rock than rhythm, James goes with the flow of the times and succeeds without pandering. She makes Alice Cooper's 'Only Women Bleed' her own, puts some guts in the Eagles' `Take It To The Limits', and stands toe to toe with Janis Joplin on 'Piece Of My Heart'.
Pure Pleasure's excellent reissue of fine effort is a great testament to one of our most underrated female musicians. DD Recording 7/10 Music 8/10
