Alberta Hunter started recording in the 1920s but had one of her biggest hits in 1940 with "My Castle's Rockin'". Alberta is known for her earthy style and the often earthier lyrics of her recordings. But she always carried it off with class.

This tune features the piano playing of Eddie Haywood. Eddie was one of the early masters of the boogie woogie style, but here's a really interesting item. Eddie also wrote the standard "Canadian Sunset" which, if you listen to it carefully, is really a slowed-down boogie woogie tune. In fact, you can hear the bass riff of "Canadian Sunset" in Eddie's solo on this recording.
