Blues Masters, Vol. 11: Classic Blues Women

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Cub Koda
Although it is now a male dominated field, the earliest to record and have success in the blues field were women. This volume not only collects up many of the great recordings by these women Mamie, Trixie and Bessie Smith, Billie Holiday, Sippie Wallace, Ma Rainey, but also holds the distinction in the series of being one of the few that offers multiple selections by some of these artists. Highly recommended.
