“This would have been LP of the month, had it not arrived in the middle of a quartet of equally fine gems. Legrand has the sonic edge, but equally this gives you some of the finest-ever moments of Etta at her soulful best, when she was paired with the perfectly complementary Jerry Wexler as producer, in a return to Muscle Shoals.

Etta never disappointed, and back in '92 she was on fire: her interpretaition of 'Ninety Nine and Half Won't Do',with the song's co-auther Steve Cropper on guitar, is one of those moments soul fans dream of, while the guest musiicians fronm a who's who of funk. Steve Winwood, Lucky Peterson,Hank Crawford, Willie Weeks. JUST BUY IT.” Ken Kessler, Hi Fi News, December 2017

“A myriad of big names came together for the making of this album. Jerry Wexler produced The Right Time, and Etta James' sidemen include Steve Cropper and Lucky Peterson -- but the final product is a disappointment. It's just too slickly rendered to come close to the knockout punch of her vintage Chess material.” AllMusic Review by Bill Dahl
