Avery was one artist who didn't fare too well on Olivia. Perhaps her blues style didn't
jive with the marketing of their mainly folky output. According to the LP jacket liner
notes stuffed in early Olivia albums (below), a release by Avery was planned for
1978. Pity it never happened.

You'll only find Avery on Olivia singing her classic "Sugar Mama" on one side
of a 45 and on the 1977 landmark various artists album "Lesbian Concentrate."


Finally in 2000, an album was released, and in 2001 it garnered her an
Outmusic Award for Outstanding New Recording. There was one other
album recorded, in 1993 called Gwen Avery Live at IMA
