Sheet music cover for "It's All Your Fault," popularized by Sophie Tucker

Interesting piece in yesterday’s New York Times on the release of a new CD (remember those?), Sophie Tucker: Origins of the Red Hot Mama, 1910-1922, which includes fresh digital transfers of some of the singer’s earliest recordings.   You can sample some snippets of these recordings, as well as view a few images from one of the several Sophie Tucker collections held by the various divisions of the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.
