Award Winning Performance Documentary!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This award-winning performance documentary, which includes a full-length concert from The Cookery in Greenwich Village, tells the story of a legendary singer/songwriter who retired at 62 and made a comeback at 82. The Los Angeles Times called it "an exhilarating, moving portrait of an extraordinary woman."#1331 (60 min, Hi-Fi Stereo)"

"There's actually 4 records: 1977's Remember My Name, a soundtrack she wrote the songs for apparently and sang when she was 82, her first release since her last record, I guess, at age 62. Her second album is Amtrak Blues from 1978 age 83, then The Glory of Alberta Hunter 1981 age 86 and, finally, Look for the Silver Lining from 1982 at age 87. There is also a CD called Downhearted Blues Live at the Cookery. She also has another live release Jazz live at the Smithsonian. Yow.

Her voice is so wonderful at this later age. Similar, to me, with Johnny Cash where I prefer his voice in his last decade much more than his first 2 or 3 decades. Same with Alberta Hunter. I don't really care for her work from the 20's through 40's. But this stuff is stunning. She has so much gusto and presence and to have the chance to see her live show here is a real treat."
