    "The blues is born with you. When you born in this world, you were born with the blues. (Lightnin’ Hopkins, 1967)

  • Cream of The Crate: Album # 196 - Ma Rainey: Ma Rainey

    Cream of The Crate: Album # 196 - Ma Rainey: Ma Rainey

    "Her deep, almost-vibratoless contralto sounded rough and unsophisticated compared to other commercial blueswomen but she projected a great depth of feeling and was adored by audiences." (US Library of Congress
    "Ma Rainey was one of the first singers to popularize the style (the blues)." (Joe McGasko - Bio May 2015)
    "
    When we listen to Ma Rainey, the recordings are very crude, but even so the power and mesmerism of her voice shows that pure talent and commitment to an audience makes Ma Rainey stand out even more today.
