Despite the early history of music residing in the hands of men, the real stars of the music in the 1920s were actually women in the shape of major artists like Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith. Filled with raw emotion, intelligence and plenty of humour, the content spread over the 3 discs is a veritable musical history lesson featuring the definitive performers of the 20s through to the 60s.

By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
75 ORIGINAL CLASSICS on a
3 CD BOX SET
But note the spelling It's LadIES not LadY.
Amazon have spelt it wrongly!

These sets really are a steal at this price.

The simple reason that these sets are as cheap as chips is that the tracks are public domain.

That means the rights to the music has gone and any old Dick or Harry can release them.

The bad news for the previous rights holders means good news for us, the buyers for if the price is too high we will not buy.
So the sets are at a more than reasonable price.
Next year the law changes to fall in line with the Americans and the 50 year rule will be finished.

Now these sets really are a mixed bag.

Some tracks and artists you will know- others not.

But that is the real joy- you just might discover some tracks you have never heard and enjoy if not then the FF feature is just for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Ladies Sing The Blues, NOT3CD115... 15 July 2013
By C. FULLER TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This really is a great 3 CD set offering a view of ladies singing the blues from the early days right through until 1962. The blues equates to lots of different interpretations and you certainly get plenty here. The sound quality is excellent throughout. The liner notes are by Not Now Music regular Peter Gamble. In all you get 75 tracks and a mix of vintage performances; well known singers and not so well remembered. The make up of the set is 7 vintage tracks from before 1940; 13 contemporary performances from 1960 onwards and 55 dating from 1940 to 1959.
CD1 runs for 75.51 and covers 1929 to 1962 and the likes of Bessie Smith to Odetta. CD2 runs for 72.51 and has ladies like Memphis Minnie & Dakota Staton and covers 1930 to 1962. CD3 runs for 76.24 and covers 1939 to 1962 and features the likes of Billie Holiday and Eydie Gorme.
Overall a super set with attractive slimline gatefold design incorporating 10 images and recording years are quoted. Pricewise a bargain. Another excellent release from Not Now Music..
