A minor hit for Etta James on the Billboard charts, 'Fools Rush In' became a pop standard for many during the early 60′s: Ricky Nelson, Brooke Benton.

Elvis later went on to record perhaps the best-known version of this track, and while his version is surely unsurpassed, James delivers a roaring performance here that sees her enviable vocal capacity in full flight.

True, it starts out without much of a hint at excitement, however, once Etta gets going the attention is held to the point of awe for one of the finest female voices there ever was.
