In 1959 producer Clyde Otis teamed his two favorite singers, the seasoned jazz star Dinah Washington and the young R&B crooner Brook Benton, in the studio and came up with two top-10 pop hits from the resulting album, The Two of Us. Washington is Diane Schuur's biggest hero, and the young jazz vocalist wanted to do her own version of The Two of Us. She found an unexpected but appropriate partner in B.B. King, who is best known for the blues, of course, but who also has experience with the kind of jazz, country, and R&B standards Schuur had in mind for the project. The result is Heart to Heart, a duet album that brings out the best of both singers. Schuur's tendency to oversing is held in check by the rootsy nature of the material and King's down-to-earth presence in the studio. And King gets a chance to stretch out beyond his usual repertoire and show how well he can croon on numbers like Irving Berlin's "I'm Putting All My Eggs in One Basket" and Harry Warren's "At Last." --Geoffrey Himes

Etta sang, sizzled and swaggered her best during her 1960-1976 Chess period-which, at long last, is thoroughly anthologized here: 3 CDs with 72 tracks comprising all her key Chess sides, 10 unissued cuts and three singles not previously on any album! Joined by a 40-page booklet, this set includes 20 pop hits ( At Last; Tell Mama; Pushover; Trust in Me ), 24 R&B hits ( Don't Cry Baby; All I Could Do Was Cry; Stop the Wedding ), unissued covers of Light My Fire and Never My Love and more-close to four hours.
You can't have too much Etta James. Really. This long-overdue collection of the singer's Chess recordings includes much of her best work. Three CDs' worth. 72 tracks. Shivers abound just thinking about it. Of course, all the songs you'd expect are here: "I Just Want to Make Love to You," "Spoonful," "Something's Got a Hold on Me," "Tell Mama," and, naturally, "At Last," among many, many others. But you don't need me to convince you why Etta James is worth hearing; what you want to know is, is this box set worth the price? Well, it's got almost everything you'd find on At Last, James's first studio album and widely considered her best, and it includes the same material as Her Best, which up to now was hands-down the best introduction to the glory that is Etta James. But say you've already got that stuff, why would you want this? Well, first of all, the packaging is stellar. A 40-page booklet comes in a handsomely presented box, which contains a wealth of pictures, quotes, and perspectives that do much to illuminate what made James's 16-year period at Chess Records so special. There are definitely a few musical chestnuts here; several previously unreleased tracks, as well as a few that were released as singles only. Notable inclusions are a previously unreleased version of "You Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" and a live version of "At Last." Whether or not it's possible to distill the work of a singer like Etta James down to three CDs, this is a very strong collection and an admirable effort to get the best of Etta all in one place. --Genevieve Williams

Blues lovers everywhere knew the legend of Robert Johnson, but only one complete Robert Johnson song was commercially available until this 1961 album came out. The most anticipated blues album of all time also became the most influential as future rock stars devoured it. Along with Crossroads Blues; Rambling on My Mind , and all the other classics, this reissue contains a newly discovered, previously unissued alternate version of Traveling Riverside Blues ! 17 tracks.
If there is a recording that is required listening for every blues fan, it's this one. Robert Johnson wasn't just King of the Delta blues; he was one of its founding fathers, and these re-mastered tunes are as timeless and important today as they were all those years ago. The songs that passed into the blues canon, to be covered by countless guitarists over the years, are here: "Crossroad Blues," "Preaching Blues," "Come On In My Kitchen," "Walking Blues," and more. And on this particular version of this often-reissued recording, there's an additional treat: a previously unreleased version of "Traveling Riverside Blues." Absolutely essential. --Genevieve Williams
