My copy is super flat and super clean. Sounds great, no noise at all and perfect album to give some volume to, just starts sounding better and better.

‘4 Men with beards’ reissues can be a bit of a hit or miss affair, this one however is most definitely a hit. Quiet, flat, deep bass, silky mids and a good strong cardboard cover. I’m not usually a fan of mono recordings but this one sounds awesome. Etta is on fire and those Fame Studio boys as always, sound amazing. Pick one up, if you can get your hands on one. You may need to put your sunglasses on when you remove the record though!
Great job beard people!

Very nice pressing. Clear detailed sound on quiet quality vinyl. Direct Metal Master cut at Pallas, Germany on virgin vinyl.

"I'd Rather Go Blind" is my favourite Etta James track and would be one of my desert island discs. I would get the album just for this. The title track is also a fine song, and there's some other good moments here and this re-release has ten bonus tracks that are all all similar quality to the album with Etta and the Music Shoals musicians on fine form, but it's not all the strongest material. It's mainly got a good funky soul feel to it, but nothing really special.
