This is one in a series of similar releases which highlights (loosely) a specific genre of music. This set features female r&b singers from the years 1939-1954. The 24-Bit remastered sound is pretty goo overall, but there's still a feel of period recording techniques--which adds authenticity and some atmosphere to the music. The discs snap inside the front and back inside covers of the long book-style packaging. The attached booklet has track-by-track information in both German and English, plus a few b&w photos of some of the performers. This set floats somewhere between 3 1/2 and 4 "stars".

Why this set hasn't been reviewed in some depth before now is a mystery. Does anyone still listen to this kind of music? Does the low price scare people away because they equate low price with low quality? Well, in a nutshell this is a great collection of female r&b. Included are a number of well known singers like LaVern Baker, Julia Lee, Big Maybelle, Hadda Brooks, Ruth Brown, Helen Humes, Mabel Scott, Lil Green, Big Mama Thornton, and several others. Some of the tunes these performers are known for are here alongside lesser known tracks that are equally good.

But the lesser/totally unknown performers included are well worth hearing too. Tunes like "Mr. Low Love" by Terry Timmons, "The Walkin' Blues" by Fluffy Hunter, "Your Money Ain't Long Enough" by Cherri Lynn, "Drill, Daddy, Drill" by Dorothy Ellis, "Rattlesnake Poppa" by Madonna Martin, "Blow Me Mr. Be Bop" by Tina Dixon, and many others aren't mere filler. These are exciting period shoutin' and hollerin' r&b for the most part.

Listened to the product once. Thought I would be able to use it as background for a dinner, but the music even predates me. My mom would have loved it.
