Etta James Sings for Lovers is the fourth studio album by American Blues artist, Etta James. The album was released on Argo Records in 1962 and was produced by Phil and Leonard Chess.

Background[edit]

The album was released on a 12-inch LP and consisted of ten tracks with five of them on each side of the vinyl record. The album spawned only one single, "Fools Rush In," which reached the lower ends of the Billboard Pop Chart in 1962. The single's B-side, "Next Door to the Blues" was a major R&B hit, however it was not included on the album. The album however includes cover versions of Pop and Jazz standards, including "Don't Take Your Love from Me" and "Someone to Watch Over Me." The album has never been re-issued on compact disc like James's previous two albums. Despite not being given a review, Allmusic gave Etta James Sings for Lovers three out of five stars.[2]
