Description
In an era when women were the marquee names in blues, Ma Rainey was once the most celebrated of all. The "Mother of the Blues" had been singing for more than 20 years before she made her recording debut in 1923 and became even more influential. Like the other classic blues divas, Ma Rainey had a repertoire of pop, hot jazz, and minstrel songs as well as blues, and that multiplicity is well represented in this 16-track collection. Songs include "Don't Fish in My Sea," "Oh Papa," "See See Ryder," "Grievin' Hearted Blues," "Prove It on Me Blues," and "Bo Weavil Blues."

"Rainey's voice slices through the crackle of these vintage 78s. With her sly delivery, soulful tone, and jazzy embellishments, it is abundantly clear why Rainey was one of the most popular performers of her day, and why her name is still revered."—All Music Guide
