This CD brings together the best performances from the 18 years of her association with the festival when she was at her absolute peak. It features many of her best-loved tracks and songs that she is particularly associated with.

She was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame in 1993, the Blues Hall of Fame in 2001, and the Grammy Hall of Fame in both 1999 and 2008. Rolling Stone ranked James number 22 on their list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time and number 62 on the list of the 100 Greatest Artists. She passed away Jan 20, 2012 after a long illness.
