"This is Volume One(of two) is a series put out by the great Document label, of classic 20's blues singer Maggie Jones, who was often accompanied by top jazz musicians of the day. The highlights of this wondeful disc(which cover everything she did between 1923-25) are the tracks that feature hot jazz solos by Louis Armstrong, who often backed up Jones in her studio sessions, also Fletcher Henderson appaers an many of these classic sides, among the most memorable of the tunes are Poor House Blues, Anybody Here Want To Try My Cabbage, Thunderstorm Blues and the classic If I Lose, Let Me Lose (Mamma Don't Mind). This is classic blues at it's best, Jones' delivery is wonderful and with backup by Armstrong, and Henderson, this set is essential. Collectors will want to pick this up for the hot Armstrong cornet solos. Essential music."
