  4. She certainly has a compelling voice and I liked what she said at the beginning about saving a nickle if you have a dime.

  6. I’m more familiar with the Bessie Smith version (which she mentions in this video). This is a good one as well.

  7. 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. :)

    1. I had some of her albums. I gave them to my older son with the turntable years ago. She had a way about her :)
