CD Reviews

Church of the Blues
Keven A Henson | Philadelphia, PA United States | 02/05/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yes, you have heard that Bessie Smith was the best of the blues singers. Well hang on to your "hankie" Big Maybelle is cut from that same cloth. Give a listen to "Blame it on your love" and "I'm lost" and you can feel the sorry of lost love that Big Maybelle unleashes right down to your toes. If you have never heard her torch a song then listen to her rendition of "Why was I born". She also has something for that man that "done her wrong" with her redition of two of my favorite songs "No better for you" and "Your turn to cry". No need to put on your Sunday best, but Big Maybelle is about to take you to the Church of the Blues, baby. I love women singing the blues and I own every Cd in print by this wonderful and one of the best blues artist that ever graced this planet. Nuff said, click "BUY"."
If you like Big Maybelle, you'll love this CD.

"This CD contains a total of 21 tracks that cover the gamut from blues to ballads. I would rate at least half of them outstanding. Recorded for Paramount in the early 60's, I suspect, the sound quality is really good. I am glad I got a copy of this CD. I think you will be, too."
