Etta James’ latest album The Dreamer (probably her last) is on, listening to her version of Otis’ Cigarettes and Coffee, a lovely song, sun is shining. Hey, just got an idea, took out my CD, The Otis Redding Anthology, (a great 2-CD set), and put on the Otis version. I don’t want no cream or sugar, I got you baby…How is it that a singer can make you ache?
