Magnificent blues singing

"This is music of astonishing quality and power. Bessie Tucker may not have the posthumous fame of the other Bessie, but she emerges from these scratchy but well remastered records as a genuine blues giant.
This CD contains her complete output, including six alternate takes. Her ever-present accompanist is a distinctive and spontaneous pianist, K.D.Johnson. The 1929 tracks add a guitar and, sometimes, are anchored by a brass bass
Tucker's blues lyrics merit special attention, which her clear diction makes easy. Her concerns extend beyond familiar staples of men and infidelity to cover travel, railroads, prison camps and a broader than usual picture of southern rural life. It's unforgettable.
No lover of blues should be without this."
