Synopsis

Album Description
Ivory Joe Hunter (his real name) was one of the first R&B artist to sell equally well to whites and blacks. His smooth vocal style often brings to mind another black artist who sold to a crossover audience in the 1940s and 1950s, Nat "King" Cole. The tracks compiled for this collection include those recorded at his first session for King (September, 1947) through his last (August, 1949). After leaving King, Hunter recorded for MGM, Atlantic and a handful of smaller labels between 1950 and the late 1960s. In the early 1970's, Hunter signed with Columbia's Epic subsidiary to pursue his interest in country & western music.
