Etta James performs two songs on the 1982 National Easter Seal Telethon

About This video

I just found this video on YouTube from 1982 of Etta James during the Nation Easter Seals Telethon. I had been with Etta for 8 years already by this time and we had just finished touring with the Rolling Stones together.

I was also a member of a band who did Anti-Nuke benefits and Telethons like this one, backing up several artists for shows, including, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Bonny Raitt, Jackson Brown and Joe Walsh. That band was called “The Hollywood Rock & Roll Review”

This video is a snapshot of this exciting time in my musical life and shows Etta James at her best, performing with passion, grace and plenty of heat.

thanks for tuning in,
