Dinah Washington, "The Fabulous Miss D! The Keynote, Decca, and Mercury Singles 1943-1953"
The first 10 years of Washington's brief career were among her finest. Hit after hit — from "Evil Gal Blues" to "I Sold My Heart to the Junkman" — Washington was a dynamo at home in R&B, jazz, and blues. "The Fabulous Miss D!" chronicles her early period with four CDs that collect 107 tracks (most of them on Mercury) complete with lavish packaging full of rare photos and extensive historical background.
