    Her voice isn't quite the nasty snarl it once was, but the attitude remains. [1/5/2001, p.70]
  2. 70
    Though not as raw as the original versions, due mainly to the sometimes overly polished production of her sons Donto James and Sametto James, Etta's raw voice alone helps to retain the melancholy moods of these tales of lost love, strife, and movin' on.
  3. A solid return to roots, Matriarch of the Blues finds Etta James reclaiming her throne -- and defying anyone to knock her off it.
