Complete your Bessie Smith collection. I have this on vinyl Lp. The vinyl itself is a little noisy, but the music sounds very fresh and new. By the sound you couldn't tell these were recorded off of those ancient 78's from the 20's & 30's! A great album, if you can find it. I'd love to find it on CD!

Bessie Smith (April 15, 1894 – September 26, 1937) was an American blues singer. Nicknamed the Empress of the Blues, she was the most popular female blues singer of the 1920s and 1930s. She is often regarded as one of the greatest singers of her era and was a major influence on fellow blues singers, as well as jazz vocalists. The 1900 census indicates that her family reported that Bessie Smith was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee, in July 1892

Bessie Smith's soulful voice and tales of everyday life earned her the title "Empress of the Blues. However, at the height of her success, Bessie Smith’s career began to flounder, due in part to the financial ravages of the Great Depression and a change in cultural mores. In 1929 she and Jack Gee permanently separated, and by the end of 1931 Smith had stopped working with Columbia altogether. However, ever the dedicated performer, Smith adapted her repertoire and continued to tour.
