Description
This two-disc, 36-song set takes this oft-imitated, never surpassed singer from her first recordings in 1923 to her final session in 1933. With all selections remastered, the "Empress of the Blues" never sounded better. Highlights include "Aggravatin' Papa," "Jail-House Blues," "'Tain't Nobody's Bizness If I Do," "You've Been a Good Ole Wagon," "Cake Walkin' Babies From Home," "Send Me to the 'Lectric Chair," "Kitchen Man," "Moan, You Moaners," and "Gimme a Pigfoot And a Bottle of Beer."

"Bessie could sing it all, from the lowdown moan of 'St. Louis Blues' and 'Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out' to her torch treatment of the jazz standard 'After You've Gone' to the downright salaciousness of 'Need a Little Sugar in My Bowl.'…. The selection —collecting her best-known sides and collaborations with jazz giants like Louis Armstrong, Coleman Hawkins, and Benny Goodman—is first-rate. If you've never experienced the genius of Bessie Smith … prepare yourself to be devastated."—All Music Guide
