Dinah Washington was a perennial on the postwar R&B and jukebox charts, and this valuable Acrobat compilation collects no less than 47 of her sides from the late '40s and early '50s. The period saw her moving from early blues sides, with help from Lionel Hampton ("Salty Papa Blues," "Evil Gal Blues") to her take on more urbane material, including pop hits of the time like "Hey Good Lookin'" with the Ravens, "Cold, Cold Heart" and "Wheel of Fortune" (in case there's any doubt, she was more than a match for Kay Starr on the latter). The sound quality leaves a bit to be desired, but the wealth of material on display is more than enough to compensate. ~ John Bush
