AllMusic Review by

This documentary (narrated by Billy Taylor) traces the remarkable life of singer Alberta Hunter, who had a major comeback at age 82 after 20 years out of the music business. There are some brief interviews, but the bulk of the film features Hunter performing at the Cookery in the early '80s. She is quite appealing and seemingly ageless on such tunes as "My Castle's Rockin'," "Downhearted Blues," "Handy Man," and "The Love I Have for You."
