Product Code: NOT2LP237
Bessie Smith dominated what has become known as classic blues. Living every day as though it were her last was hardly conducive to a long life, but it gave the singer experience of suffering which she brought out in her singing. Not that Bessie was lacking in humour; the recordings of more comic material are every bit as red blooded as her articulation of disillusionment and hurt. Enjoy this superb 2LP compilation including Careless Love Blues, Downhearted Blues, Nobody Knows You When Youre Down And Out, and many more.
