Stars of the Apollo

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
This double CD is a straight reissue of the original double LP. Its 28 selections mostly focus on singers and bands from the swing era that performed at one time or another at the Apollo; all but eight of the numbers are from the 1927-42 period. Highpoints of this hodgepodge collection include Bessie Smith's "Gimme a Pigfoot," The Mills Brothers' "Sweet Sue," Bill "Bojangles" Robinson's "Doin' the New Lowdown," Slim Gaillard's "Sploghm," Sarah Vaughan's "Ain't Misbehavin'," Screamin' Jay Hawkins's remarkable "I Put a Spell on You" and Aretha Franklin's "Evil Gal Blues."
