Album Review

The third, and final, Lucille Hegamin Document CD features her during 1923-1926 along with two titles from 1932; Hegamin would not appear on records again until 1960. It is surprising that she did not pop up on records during the latter half of the '20s for she was quite active performing in shows, and her easy way with pop tunes of the period could have made her a strong seller. Her 1923-1926 records usually feature her backed by an unidentified combo called the Dixie Daisies, other than two duets with pianist J. Russell Robinson and a couple of 1926 selections ("Nobody But My Baby Is Getting' My Love" and "Senorita Mine") with Clarence Williams' group. Although the personnel is long lost, Hegamin's backup musicians are generally quite good, both in reading their parts and in jamming short solos. The singer is heard in fine form on such numbers as "Rampart St. Blues," "If You Don't Give Me What I Want I'm Gonna Get It Somewhere Else," "Hard Hearted Hannah," "Alabamy Bound," "Dinah," and "Poor Papa." The two selections from 1932 ("Shake Your Cans" and "Totem Pole") are lesser numbers (taken as duets with pianist Irving Williams) but show that Lucille Hegamin was still in prime form at the time. Recommended.

A classic blues singer from the 1920's, Lucille Hegamin survived long enough to be recorded again in the 1960's.
