Ethel Waters (1924-1928) Review

by Scott Yanow

This LP from the Austrian Wolf label reissues 20 of Ethel Waters's rarer recordings from the 1924-28 period. Although it has been succeeded by the Classics Complete series, this album filled a lot of gaps when it was released and was quite generous with 20 selections and nearly an hour of music. "Sympathetic Dan," "Home," "Take Your Black Bottom Outside" and "Do What You Did Last Night" are highpoints of the fine release.
