The genre of Blues has tradionally been the realm of men, spinning tales of woe and misery. But as long as there have been men singing the blues, there has been a small segment of women blues artists who have gone almost entirely unnoticed. BLUES GUITAR WOMEN traces back to the hey-day of blues, the 1930's, chronicling the blues guitartists, including one of the most prolific women of blues, Memphis Minnie, who's carrer spans nearly 50 years. This album is a chronicle of the hidden side of blues throughout the twentieth century, the womens side.

The liner notes are also impressive albeit brief as they give you some details of each performer and as such this compilation is a brilliant place to start if you are new to the genre (like me) as you can cherry pick your favourites and then explore that performers discography at your leisure.
Highly recommended even if this is not your usual musical genre.
This two CD set just shows to go ya that there are some real cool cats that can purrrr and growl...
Sue Foley provides liner notes and has a song on each CD.
