At Last

Here’s our song for today: The love ballad At Last, as sung by Lucy Thomas, in a cover of the song originally by Etta James. Both versions to me are fantastic.

Etta (1938-2012) had an African-American mother and a white biological father than she never knew. To me, Etta’s version is more soulful that Lucy’s, but each is marvelous in its own way, two incredible voices. I could listen to both versions all day, eyes closed, lifted heavenward.

Double enjoy, DJ Doc K
