Description
"The blues ain't nothin' but a pain in your heart, when you and your man have to part" mused Billie Holiday in "Lady Sings the Blues." Although the theme of heartbreak pervades these four CDs, it's the particular focus of Breakin' My Heart Blues. Among its 12 classic tracks are Robert Johnson's "Love in Vain," Leadbelly's "Roberta," John Lee Hooker's "Don't Go Baby," Muddy Waters' "Forty Days and Forty Nights," and Mississippi John Hurt's "Baby, What's Wrong With You." The gratifying and fabulous Women of the Blues CD features Sister Rosetta Tharpe ("Trouble in Mind"), Helen Humes ("Unlucky Woman"), Sippie Wallace ("You Gonna Need My Help"), Victoria Spivey ("Moaning the Blues"), Memphis Minnie ("Me and My Chauffeur Blues"), and more. Equally outstanding is Voices of the Blues; focusing on unique stylists, it includes songs by B.B. King ("The Thrill Is Gone"), Bo Diddley ("I'm Going Home"), Buddy Guy ("First Time I Met the Blues"), Big Maybelle ("I Won't Cry Anymore"), and Dinah Washington ("Blues on My Weary Mind"). The storytellers of Tales of the Blues include Muddy Waters ("Rollin' Stone"), Big Bill Broonzy ("Black, White and Brown"), Bessie Smith ("Jazzbo Brown from Memphis Town"), Lightnin' Hopkins ("Goin' Back Home"), and Howlin' Wolf ("Dust My Broom").
