Ma Rainey or "The Mother Of The Blues" began recording in 1923 for Paramount, making her one of the first blues artists ever to record. Active since 1896 in vaudeville and minstrel shows, she was an incredible character, shocking the audiences with her odd lyrics and performances, often to the limit of decency and above all very uncommon for a woman of those times. This LP contains some of her greatest songs from those long lost recordings.
