The late singer's 1993 concert performance will be available on Blu-ray in August.
In an early announcement to retailers, Eagle Rock has set 'Etta James: Live at Montreux 1993' for Blu-ray on August 28.
Etta James made many appearances at the Montreux Jazz Festival across her long and distinguished career from her first concert in 1975 through to her last in 2008. This Blu-ray focuses on the concert from 1993 when she was at her absolute peak and complements it with selected tracks from many other Montreux appearances. It features many of her best loved tracks and songs that she is particularly associated with. Etta James was one of the most respected performers of her generation. In a career stretching over 60 years she was inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall Of Fame and the Blues Hall Of Fame, won 3 Grammys and received many more nominations and was named Female Blues Artist Of The Year on no less than 14 occasions. Sadly, Etta James passed away after a long illness in January 2012 and this Blu-ray is a fitting tribute to one of the greatest female vocalists of the 20th century.
