A REAL MILESTONE, IN MORE WAYS THAN ONE!!!
In the mid-1970's, Milestone Records released a two-LP set, containing 32 tracks by "Ma" Rainey. It was considered to be the definitive re-issue of its day. When CD'S came along, and the LP went the way of the dinosaur, it was feared that this re-issue would be lost. Thankfully, this has not happened, with the release of this CD. This is a great disc! The sound is great, and the song selection couldn't be better. The list of accompanists reads like a Who's Who of jazz and blues. If there's one thing to regret, it is that there are only 24 tracks on the disc, instead of the 32 tracks, which were on the original LPS. While this disc does not contain her very first recordings, it covers her career quite well. I highly recommend it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
