Etta James / Mary Ann – Fisher Seven Day Fool / Put On My Shoes
ETTA JAMES, born Jamesette Hawkins, passed away in 2012 leaving an enduring legacy of class R&B hits and wonderful rarities such as this anthemic dancefloor winner from 1961. In 2007 R&B singer/songwriter Jully Black took “Seven Day Fool” to #9 on the Canadian Hot 100 produced by Black Eyed Pea – Keith Harris. But it is Etta’s original masterpiece that has been elevated to the Northern Soul Hall Of Fame.
MARY ANN FISHER was born in Henderson, Kentucky and her break came when she met Ray Charles at the USO Club in Fort Knox. She had a 3-year affair with Charles before establishing her own solo career.
