AllMusic Review by

The first of two LPs, much of this set actually features blues vocals by a variety of singers (Rosa Henderson, Hannah Sylvester, Hazel Myers and Lena Wilson) with semianonymous backing by Henderson and a few members of his orchestra; only six numbers are actually by Henderson's band. Due to the primitive nature of the recordings and the lack of strong solos, this LP is strictly for collectors.
