“Someone to Watch Over Me” is a jazz standard composed by George Gershwin with lyrics by Ira Gershwin from the 1926 musical Oh, Kay!. Several artists have recorded this song, but like her other recordings, Etta James put her soul-stirring stamp on it. The version presented here is not the first version Ms. James recorded of the song in 1962 for the album Etta James Sings For Lovers, but a subsequent version she recorded years later in 1995 for her album Time After Time.
