Description by

This a landmark Bessie Smith release. In that it is the first to concentrate purely on her 49 most popular recordings and to assume that if there where a chart then she would, as one of the most influential recording artists in History, without doubt have topped the charts. These recordings made between 70 and 80 years ago display a power and intensity undiminished by time recordings that still inspire vocalists the world over. As part of our Fabulous range it has been priced to attract both the collector and the curious and to invite people aboard the Bessie Smith fan club that still rolls along even after all these years.
