The Best of Blues, Candy & Big Maybelle

A 1957 session with Kenny Burrell on guitar yields interesting stabs at "White Christmas" and "Silent Night," while a 1959 session finds her big voice framed with a string section on a great read of "Until the Real Thing Comes Along." A very underrated singer, Big Maybelle is a total delight and deserves a much wider hearing.

    Most Forgotten VOICE of our time

    Indeed, Big Maybelle is the most forgotten voice of our time. Her resonance of pure unadultered richness fills our ears with her contralto vocal range on hits like "Candy" (which I first heard on the Cosby Show) and "Until the Real Thing Comes Along", "I Got it Bad and that Aint Good".
