Alberta Hunter's comeback after 20 years off the music scene was quite inspiring. She was (along with Sippie Wallace) virtually the only classic blues singer of the 1920s still active during part of the 1980s, and her four Columbia albums (of which this was the third) are surprisingly strong. With able backing by the Gerald Cook quartet, trumpeter Doc Cheatham, trombonist Vic Dickenson and tenor-saxophonist Budd Johnson, Alberta Hunter sings some standards (including "Some of These Days," "The Glory of Love" and "I Cried for You"), a few religious hymns ("Ezekiel Saw the Wheel" and "Give Me That Old Time Religion"), the Yiddish tune "Ich Hob Dich Tzufil Lieba" and her own "Alberta's Blues" and "The Love I Have for You." ---Scott Yanow, All Music Review

 

As 82-years old blues survivor Alberta Hunter was artist with a heart big as the world (check her "Amtrak blues" CD) - howewer,as a young woman she was closer to Vaudeville/Cabaret music that made rich customers of the night clubs giggle,than to real passionate blues that Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith recorded at the same time.Closer in spirit to "whitened" and forgotten Ethel Waters than to famous black blues mama's Hunter used heavy vibratto and her half-spoken ditties made her sound like old woman when she just started her career!This compilation is showcase of her early successes but although she wrotte "Downhearted Blues" and sang "Nobody Knows The Way I Feel This Morning",Bessie Smith and later Dinah Washington mopped the floor with her.If you like irresistible work of older Alberta Hunter,this CD is just curiosity that showes how much she progressed in the meantime.Of all the blues diva's from 20-es I still havent found anybody who can match Ma Rainey and great Bessie Smith,all others were just imitation. ---Sasha, amazon.com
