(5 out of 5 stars)

"Yazoo continues it's line of priceless collections made from nearly extinct 78's with this stunning set of sensual, deep soul sides. The sound quality has been masterfully restored - no easy feat considering the rarity and age of these finds. The intimacy of these piano masseurs - Pinetop Sparks, Roosevelt Sykes, and Cow Cow Davenport - and their women gives me goosebumps sometimes, sometimes it just makes me sigh. Sexy, warm, unbelievably artful - this music will make you wonder what the hell happened to music and why it hasn't been THIS good in fifty years. Great late night listening, makes drinking alone a very desirable thing."
One of those things that....

"if people gave it half a chance, they'd thoroughly enjoy it. The voices and music are raw, soulful....defiant almost. Tunes about tough times, especially for a woman, sung by obviously tough ladies. Likewise, tough, raw, emotional voices. Some of these tunes are incandescent with intensity: St. Louis Bessie's "Meat Cutter Blues" is as confident in its dreams of illicit sex and Lucille Bogan's "Sloppy Drunk Blues" is sad in its loneliness and alcoholism.Give these tunes whatever spin you like....but the basic notion is that these tunes will touch something in you....and you'll tap your foot at the same time."
Why can't I meet girls like this?

"Not much I can add to the other rave reviews...just want to say that Lucille Bogan should be on a postage stamp,the lyrics of Satan Is Busy In Knoxville should guarantee it a po-mo cover version by some jaded boho and the interaction on Taint A Cow In Texas is worthy of Bessie Smith/James P. Johnson (high praise, if you don't know it!). One of my favorite CD's of the year. This whole Yazoo series is essential."
