ROUGH GUIDE TO BESSIE SMITH Vinyl Record

Bessie Smith was the first superstar of the blues with one of the greatest voices of the twentieth century - dubbed 'The Empress Of The Blues', her majestic delivery and indomitable spirit were unsurpassed. Remastered for exceptional audio clarity, the emotional intensity and expressiveness of Bessie Smith still takes the breath away. Smith was the most popular female blues singer of the 1920s and 1930s.
