ETTA BRITT

ETTA DOES DELBERT

2014-09-15

Etta Britt spent many years wandering around Nashville playing & making music in the Country arena. It took some convincing that this great voice and talent had such a beautiful soulful sound, that the blues was where she was best suited. It was during one of the Caribbean blues cruises that Etta met Delbert and decided to do an entire CD of Delbert classics with one original. It takes only one listen to this disc and you will discover this Nashville singer/songwriter could have been reincarnated as the female Delbert Mclinton. She breathes a fiery soul into each of the 11 tracks on this disc and is backed by both current & past members of Delbert's band. These songs are all classics and it is hard to imagine that you could improve upon an original, but even Delbert has given Etta the highest of praises for her renditions. Etta Britt's powerful soulful voice is a true force to reckoned with and this disc is an amazing gift. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
