"I'd Rather Go Blind" is a blues song written by Ellington Jordan and co-credited to Billy Foster. It was first recorded by Etta James in 1967, released in 1968, and has subsequently become regarded as a blues and soul classic.
It has since been recorded by a wide variety of artists, including Clarence Carter, blind from birth, on his 1969 album The Dynamic Clarence Carter. Other recordings include those by Little Milton, Chicken Shack, Koko Taylor, Man Man, Rod Stewart, B.B. King, Paul Weller, Ruby Turner, Marcia Ball, Sydney Youngblood and Beyoncé Knowles for the Cadillac Records Soundtrack.
