    Seven long-forgotten classic blues singers are featured on this CD, which has their total output. Alice Leslie Carter is heard on 11 dated but often charming performances from 1921, in which she is backed by a combo led by pianist James P. Johnson, including the debut vocal recording of "Aunt Hagar's Children Blues." Josephine Carter fares OK on four numbers, while Margaret Carter's two numbers in 1926 ("I Want Plenty Grease in My Frying Pan" and "Come Get Me, Papa, Before I Faint") are excellent, making one wish that she had recorded again. Alta Cates' lone title (the ironically titled "Never Again") is forgettable while Juanita Stinette Chappelle's only solo side (she normally recorded as a team with her husband) is fine. Finishing off this set are two numbers apiece from Alice Clinton (who is probably actress Nina Mae McKinney under a pseudonym) in 1928 and the fine lowdown blues singer Anna Belle Coleman, who would have been considered out-of-date in 1930. ~ Scott Yanow
