A softer version of Bessie Smith's versions, but I love this album for that difference and for the clean, crisp, sound quality that had developed after Bessie's heyday. Lavern Baker does a really respectful homage to Bessie here. I particularly like 'Baby Doll'. I will be honest and state that I don't particularly like Lavern baker's other albums as the production on those is from a certain commercially bland period that, for me, removed the guts of what could have otherwise have been fantastic songs. This album, however, mimics the jazz/blues big, brassy,band style of Bessie Smith's time. 'Money Blues' is also a wonderful track. I would say that the version of 'Nobody Knows You when Your Down And Out' on this album is possibly the best one going ( Eric Clapton's version being the worst ). Well,,,,,,let's face it,,,,the whole album is a treat for the lug 'oles. There is a great deal of style here. If only Lavern's other albums were of this quality.
