Although R&B/Blues/Jazz/Gospel songstress CHRISTINE KITTRELL never quite became the major star that her big voice and impressive recorded legacy richly deserved, she was critically highly regarded and her records are highly collectable.
This compilation rounds up her entire recorded output between 1951-62, for six different labels, including a side released under a couple of different pseudonyms, plus a rarity which was unreleased the first time around.
It features all three versions of her signature song, 'Sittin' Here Drinkin'', which she cut for three different labels, plus her original version of Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller's celebrated 'I'm A Woman'.
Also features her regional hits, 'Every Night In The Week', 'Snake In The Grass', 'Black Cat Crossed My Path' and 'Evil-Eyed Woman'.
This compilation is a must-have for Kittrell fans, as it includes a couple of sides which were omitted from earlier supposed 'Complete' sets.
