“Buddy Tate Invites You To Dig A Basket of Blues, issued in 1962, was the first album on the (Victoria) Spivey label. As Len Kunstadt wrote in the liner notes: “This may well be the very first record company ever organized and owned by a Negro vintage blues queen.” The album featured 1920’s blues queens Hannah Sylvester, who first recorded in 1923 and Lucille Hegamin who in November 1920 became the second African-American blues singer to record, after Mamie Smith.”

Dayton bartenders let the women in - before pouring beer over them and sending them out into the cold. Source: Ken Burns, Prohibition: Part 1
