5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Remastering - Superb Music, 21 Oct 2008

This review is from: Queen Of The Blues Volume 1 (Audio CD)
This first volume of JSP's set of Bessie Smith's complete recorded output covers the period from her first surviving session to 25th October 1926. Aternate takes are not included (they are in Volume 2) but what we have is quite superb. As well as being arguably the greatest of the classic blues singers, Bessie was also the most consistent and none of the 90 tracks is dud.

The remastering has been brilliantly done and the result has great clarity and presence - even in the accoustic recordings. By comparison, the Columbia reissues sound distinctly muddy and in my opinion this JSP issue is now the one to go for.

A superb issue that will give a lifetime's pleasure.
