An artist who led a very turbulent personal life, Dinah Washington (1924-1963) was known for her no-nonsense, unsentimental, yet always moving renditions centered on the universal subject of lost love. Featuring different clips and appeareances (some of them at Harlem's legendary Apollo Theatre!) this is an essential document that will surely surprise and fascinate the many fans of the late great Dinah Washington. The video has been completed with a selection of soundies from Martha Davis, Ruth Brown, Dorothy Dandridge, Sister Rosetta Thorpe and other female vocalists from the Forties and Fifties. Time: 59.06 Swing Era. PAL/NTSC
