Alberta Hunter was a renowned singer in the 1920's and 30's who left music to become a nurse but returned to performing in her eighties. There are numerous CD compilations of her early work, but only two CDs of her later work: Downhearted Blues, a live recording from 1981, and Amtrak Blues, a studio album from 1978.
This 1978 LP, which allmusic calls "her definitive late-period album," is not on CD. This was a thrift store find (99¢), in good but not great shape.
From allmusic: "Although the cover on this album makes it look as if this is a soundtrack album (the singer had written several songs for the film "Remember My Name"), this is actually an important studio set."
This album was released on CD February 12, 2013. The sample tracks have been removed.
