various and assorted miscellany
...what a lady.
Yes, a treasure :)
I don't know Ms Hunter, but I have heard of this song. It's a good one. Going to check out your video now.
She has a real sparkle about her :)
Like it! Thanks for sharing.
I"m glad you liked it :)
She certainly has a compelling voice and I liked what she said at the beginning about saving a nickle if you have a dime.
I remember when she was rediscovered. What a story!
I'd not heard of Alberta Hunter before ...Many thanks for the music and link.All the best Jan
I consider her a hometown treasure :)
I’m more familiar with the Bessie Smith version (which she mentions in this video). This is a good one as well.be safe! ... mae at maefood.blogspot.com
Alberta Hunter is a Memphis-born musician rediscovered late in life. I love her :)
I've actually seen this video before...quite a few years ago. Don't ask me how I came across it or why...no clue...who knows? But she is memorable with her big swinging earrings. :)
She is memorable :) You picked a great word for her :)
I LOVE Alberta Hunter -- and this is a great song!
I had some of her albums. I gave them to my older son with the turntable years ago. She had a way about her :)
