Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Hunter, Alberta - Remember My Name Remember My Name
Blues Used - LP JS 35553 Columbia
1978 Original. "Although The Cover On This Album Makes It Look As If This Is A Soundtrack Album (The Singer Had Written Several Songs For The Film "Remember My Name"), This Is Actually An Important Studio Set. Alberta Hunter, A Veteran Of The 1920's Who Was 82 At The Time, Was At The Beginning Of A Remarkable Comeback After Having Been Out Of Music For 20 Years (Working As A Nurse). The Singer Is Absolutely Delightful And Often Saucy On Such Numbers As "You Reap Just What You Sow," "I've Got A Mind To Ramble," "My Castle's Rockin'" And "Downhearted Blues," Making This Her Definitive Late-Period Album. In Addition To Hunter And A Fine Rhythm Section (Pianist Gerald Cook, Guitarist Wally Richardson, Bassist Al Hall And Either Connie Kay Or Jackie Williams On Drums), Three Veteran Horn Players (Trumpeter Doc Cheatham, Trombonist Vic Dickenson And Tenorman Budd Johnson) Help Out With Short Solos. Highly Recommended." Scott Yanow, AMG.... more details

Hunter, Alberta - The Glory Of Alberta Hunter The Glory Of Alberta Hunter
Blues Used - LP PC 37691 Columbia
1982 Original. Appears Unplayed. “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 Guide... more details
