Northern Soul Classics - Do I make Myself Clear - Etta James & Sugar Pie Desanto

Etta James is awesome.

Typical Northern soul power and grit as demonstrated in the previous offering from Etta I featured - "Seven Day Fool", which I am adding as a bonus below - and by her much used on TV ads version of "At Last". Here Etta is perfectly matched with Sugar Pie Desanto. I remember first hearing this when I was about 8 years old, on a tape on my sister's reel to reel tape recorder.

If you listen to this and it doesn't move you, if you don't feel the need to get up and get your groove thang on, then you really do have a hole in your soul.
