ON THIS DAY… 20 JAN 1964
'Rocks The House' by Etta James was released

In 1964, Etta James released the album ‘Rocks The House’, which had been recorded at the New Era Club some five months earlier. Her live recording of the Jimmy Reed song ‘Baby What You Want Me To Do’ and her vocals from the intro to the last chords is something that has to be heard and experienced.
Also on this day, in 1996, Page and Plant played in Sao Paolo, headlining the Hollywood Rock Festival. We were performing our Unledded set, featuring the orchestras and Hurdy Gurdy, which was received with typical Brazilian enthusiasm. The Black Crowes also appeared at this festival. The Hollywood Rock series of festivals that had occurred over a number of years was soon to flounder as the sponsors were Hollywood Cigarettes.
