Album Review

Anita O'Day's many and varying recordings during the swing era (pre-1951) get compiled in many different ways by many different budget labels, few of them worth the plastic they're burned onto. ASV/Living Era is quite an exception to the usual rules governing import labels, so it's less of a surprise to find that their Anita O'Day retrospective, And Her Tears Flowed Like Wine, is one of the best available.
