Those Great Blues Girls From The 40's (re-up)

In response to a request for a re-up, here's this 1985 Pathe Marconi collection of tracks originally released on Philo / Aladdin, Capitol and Imperial. Betty Hall Jones is very much the star here. Her combination of piano tinkling, sophisticated wit and dry vocal delivery is reminiscent of Julia Lee and Nellie Lutcher.
