CD Reviews

Classic Bessie...
Sébastien Melmoth | Hôtel d'Alsace, PARIS | 01/01/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This disc features the classic tracks Bessie recorded with Clarence Williams (piano) and Eddie Lang (guitar)--some of Lang's best work! The songs reflect Bessie's quintessential ethos: playful sexual innuendo--especially the combination of food & sex, as featured in "Kitchen Man," etc.

The St. Louis Blues tracks are from the early talkie Bessie stared in: the sound is a little rough, but the tracks are historically significant."
