AllMusic Review by

This U.K. best-of features the versatile 20th-century singer and actress Ethel Waters, who is heard here with 1930s and '40s recordings of some of her most popular pieces. Among the tracks are the title song from the hit musical CABIN IN THE SKY, in which she starred in both theater and movie versions; W.C. Handy's "St Louis Blues," which she was reputed to have been the first to perform; and a show-stopping version of Irving Berlin's "Supper Time."
