Martha Copeland was a highly successful artist, whose talents were mismanged and wasted by columbia. Copeland's wonderful voice was often used to record substandard sides - and copies of currents hits by Bessie Smith and others rather than promoting her own work. Copeland became famous - but never of the level that her talent would have allowed. Copeland's body of work is also lessened by the choices others made for her(much like Johnny Adams) but on her stand out tracks like the one posted today you can see how much talent and skill she possessed.
