Gladys Bentley Tribute

   

Includes Unreleased Material

Gladys Bentley was our history's first out lesbian blues singer, during years when
no one else was open about it. And also, well, she could sing! This tribute honors
her music and contributions, and includes some special unreleased recordings.
