Aren't Women Wonderful?


Sophie Tucker billed herself as the last of the red hot mammas, and she certainly gave some gusto to her vocals. She originally performed in blackface until someone stole her makeup kit one night. She briefly joined the Ziegfield Follies until costars refused to share the stage with her. Professional jealousy, perhaps. Maybe she was too red hot. Anyway, here's another collection from ASV though it runs a short 16 tracks. Enjoy. +

Wow, thanks! This set of songs includes many that I don't already have.

Recommended reading for anyone interested is her autobiography, "Some of These Days." Fascinating reading about a fascinating entertainer.
