At Last! (1961) Etta James

At Last! is a 1961 album by Etta James, and the first LP release for the blues singer. Released through Chess Records, the album consisted primarily of pop, blues, and jazz standards. James is presented as a more mainstream R&B singer on the LP, though several tracks are more traditional blues in style and vocalization. The album marked James' major mainstream breakthrough. Six tracks charted on both Billboard Magazine charts Black Singles Chart and Pop Singles Chart, including "At Last," "All I Could Do Was Cry," and "Trust in Me." In 2003, the album was ranked number 116 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
