Harry Warren (music) and Mack Gordon (lyrics) originally wrote "At Last" for a 1942 movie musical, in which it was played by Glenn Miller and His Orchestra. Glenn Miller enjoyed a Top 10 hit single with the song that same year, but it wasn't until nearly 20 years later that R&B singer Etta James immortalized the song with her bluesy signature rendition that remains popular to this day. "At Last" has since been covered by countless celebrity entertainers, is featured in high-profile motion picture and television productions, and is a perennial favorite at wedding receptions and all manner of romantic occasions. This piano/vocal sheet music arrangement captures the style of the famous Etta James recording, and sounds great either as accompaniment to a vocalist or as a piano solo. Basic guitar chord grids are also included.
About Original Sheet Music Edition
Each ORIGINAL SHEET MUSIC EDITION has been arranged for piano by Alfred's talented staff of arrangers. Every effort has been made for the arrangement to be playable on the piano and to sound as close to the original recording as possible. If there are lyrics, a separate vocal line is used so that singers can easily sing along, and all lyrics as heard on the original recording are always included. Almost all arrangements are written in the original key in which they were recorded.
