Album Review

Lucille Hegamin was one of the finest singers on records during the first half of the '20s. Her strong voice and easy to take delivery resulted in her having a large recorded output in the period. The second of three Document CDs that has all of her recordings prior to 1960 features Hegamin backed by several unidentified bands (mostly the Dixie Daisies but also her Blue Flame Syncopators, her Bang-Up Six from Georgia, and Sam Wooding's Society Entertainers) or just the piano of J. Russell Robinson or Cyril J. Fullerton. The recording quality is not bad for the time and the highlights among the 25 songs include "I've Got What It Takes But It Breaks My Heart to Give It Away," "Beale St. Mama," "Aggravatin' Papa," her third version of "He May Be Your Man But He Comes to See Me Sometimes," "Down Hearted Blues," "Saint Louis Gal," and "Dina." This series should be of strong interest to vintage classic blues collectors even though Hegamin was never technically a blues singer.
