Jan Howard Evil on your mind


Jan Howard had an ok voice but her song Evil on your Mind is one of my favorite country songs. It's a song about a cheating husband, very catchy. I don't see why people don't put out a collection of this pretty much forgotten country singer.

Rosalia


This was Karina's main competition in the Spanish ye ye scene. Here she does mostly covers but it's pleasant. Chica ye ye the best song is a cover of Conchita Velasco's awesome version. Both are pretty good actually.

Kay Starr I hear the word


I love gospel albums when they're done right, Fern Jones, Martha Carson, and this one. This may be gospel but it's pretty catchy. Jezebel and Rock a my soul are awesome numbers. This is one of Kay Starr's best albums. It's good uplifting music.

Annette Hanshaw


Some people dismiss Annette Hanshaw as a girl who just had a rich daddy to support her hobby. I think she had talent and her music is some of the best the 20's had to offer. Little White Lies is a nice ballad and check out the scatting on Big City Blues. She does an impression of her friend Helen Kane on You wouldn't fool me would you? Helen Kane is more known as the girl who inspired Betty Boop.

Ruth Etting


Ruth Etting mostly made it because of her gangster boyfriend. However she had talent. She had a nice old fashioned voice and she put her heart in the music. For example Ten Cents a Dance and Love me or Leave Me are sung with deep emotion. Doris Day was pretty good in the movie Love me or Leave Me. This is some of the best music the 20's had to offer.
