      Further to my last post, I have been unable to find any identifiable recordings by Ma Rainey other than under her own name. This is not to say that there are none. Her maiden name was Gertrude Pridgett and there may well be recordings of her using that name. She was certainly working as a vaudeville singer from as early as 1898-1900 and may possibly have recorded before 1923.

      According to TJD online and Brian Rust's 'Jazz Records 1897 - 1942' the sum total of Ma Rainey's recordings under her own name amounts to 92 titles. There may be others so watch this space.

      I read somewhere that Ma Rainey made in excess of 100 recordings.

      The Red Hot Jazz Archive contains 94 recordings.

      Does anyone know if these 94 recordings were Ma Rainey's total output?
      If she did, in fact, make more than 100 recordings, do the unlisted recordings exist, and are they available on CD?

      Cheers
