Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As implied by the title, this is the essential collection of Bessie Smith material, nearly complete in scope over two very long playing CDs. The overall sound quality is good for remastered recordings this early -- chiefly 1920s -- especially compared to other CD reissues I've heard, and the price is great considering how much music you get with this collection. If you buy just one Bessie Smith collection on CD, I'd make it this one. A great gift for classic blues and/or early jazz buffs too!
