Allmusic 4/5 stars[1]

Call My Name is the seventh studio album by American Blues artist, Etta James. The album was released on Cadet Records in 1966 and was produced by Leonard Chess.

Call My Name was the second of a series of albums James would release that mainly consisted on Soul music. It included one song that charted on Rhythm and Blues chart, "I Prefer You," that reached #42. The other two singles spawned from the release ("Don't Pick Me for Your Fool" and "Call My Name") did not chart, becoming James's first album that did not release a Top 40 single. Allmusic gave the album four out of five stars, calling the tracks, "I'm So Glad (I Found Love in You)," "It Must Be Your Love," and "Don't Pick Me for Your Fool" as "standouts." [2] The album was released on a 12-inch vinyl LP record, consisting of twelve tracks, with six songs on each side of the album. It has been available as a CD volume since 2011 when reissued with additional tracks by Kent records[3]
