Blues Women 1944-1952 / Various
The big bands of the ’40s brought female blues vocalists to the fore. But when the bubble burst and smaller R&B bands began to rule the stages and jukeboxes of the post-war era, many of those rockin’, bluesin’ thrushes took the solo route to recording and performing fame! This 23-track compilation brings you seven of those fantastic gals—Viola Wells, Albinia Jones, Etta Jones, Annisteen Allen, Lavern Baker, Varetta Dillard and Mabel Scott—on some of their greatest recordings!
