The Chronological Martha Davis 1946-1951

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
This set contains essentially all of pianist and singer Martha Davis' recorded output, although it doesn't include a mostly inconsequential late-'50s LP and curiously also lacks her best and biggest hit, a definitive cover of Dick Haymes' "Little White Lies" that topped the charts in 1948. What's here is fun jump blues-oriented material that shows Davis to be a fine singer and a quite striking pianist she is said to have learned more than a few tricks from the great Fats Waller on sides like "Martha Boogie" and the unique "Player Piano Boogie." The omission of "Little White Lies" is a problem, though.
