Description

Considering the fact that she was a popular theatre performer on the black circuits for some 20 or so years and a major recording artist from 1922-28, remarkably little seems to be known about SARA MARTIN and she has been largely neglected by writers on blues topics. Her records (with one or two exceptions) have also been overlooked in re-issue programmes and we believe that this is the first CD devoted to her work. From the time that Okeh Records talent scout Clarence Williams signed her in 1922 until she left the label in 1928, many of her records sold well but, mostly bought by a black populace who were largely poor, when found today they are usually in bad condition. Therefore, the titles used here were chosen where her accompaniments are of the greatest jazz interest and to the best quality available, with audio restoration from the great John R.T. Davies.
