Ma Rainey was the consummate blues diva of the 1920s and 1930s, tackling an amazing array of song styles (including blues, folk, pop, and minstrel songs) in every conceivable setting, working solo with guitarists and piano players, fronting jug bands, small jazz combos, and even big bands, where her strong voice (and even stronger personality) always carried the room. This collection pulls together a selection of her 78s. Highlights include two versions of her wink at the signature blues song "Bo Weavil Blues" and the thinly veiled threat "Black Eye Blues."
