DOCD-5516 Female Blues Singers Vol 12 M/O/P/Q/R 1922 - 1935 Genres: Blues, Classic Blues, Female Blues, Jazz. Informative booklet notes by David Evans Detailed discography. Although all of the eleven artists appearing on this twelfth volume, of a superb fourteen volume series, would undoubtedly have been no strangers to the stages of the vaudeville circuit, the recordings of four of them are notable in the world of entertainment. Hattie Mcdaniel was best known for her non-singing roles as a maid or �mammy� in films, radio and television beginning in the early 1930�s, including a spot in Gone With The Wind (1939) for which she became the first African American to win an Academy Award.
