AllMusic Review by

Here's "Liltin' Martha" Tilton's solo transcription sides, cut for radio between 1941 and 1948. Martha was always a class act, and she's in fine form here, singing her heart out on a bunch of tunes from the BMI catalog. Some songs became hits ("Walkin' by the River," "My Sister and I," and "Easy Street"), while others were just mere radio fodder. What's amazing -- but not surprising -- is how much life Tilton injects into all of them, making for 25 tracks of solid listening. A real hidden treasure.
