“..Few docs are as wildly entertaining as HSS, but it still does justice to the seriousness of Davis’s life and times.  Hopefully, someone from PBS has it on their radar, because it is as good as anything that has been on American Masters since Cachao: Uno Masand is considerably better than most.  Highly recommended to general audiences beyond established blues fans, Harlem Street Singer screens again as part of DOC NYC this Thursday morning (11/21) at the IFC Center, so consider calling in sick for it.”  Libertas Film Magazine
