Some Glad Morning

Etta James performing the Gospel classic I'll Fly Away. Etta died yesterday. A short but sweet remembrance is on Karen Fayeth's Oh Fair New Mexico web log, where there is also a link to a longer New Yorker tribute.

As one of the commenters on the Youtube recording says, "somebody better play this at my funeral, and ya'll better be singing!!!"



  1. What a voice. Listening to that gave me massive chills. Gonna have to find that album. Thanks for the head's up, my friend!!

    1. You're quite welcome, Karen. Happy to oblige, and thanks for stopping by. (I have to admit I've been wearing the recording out, myself.)
