Big Maybelle Smith was ... 300+ pounds. Aretha writes in her autobiography of seeing Maybelle in New Orleans "...with her little-bitty boyfriend." Imagine you're in a small club in Chicago, 2 in the morning, snowing outside, booze, tears, smoke and lost love permeating the place ... and a huge woman singing from the depths of her soul, a place so dark and deep there ought to be a warning label on the cd: Don't listen to this when you're seriously depressed! In the decades since I discovered her I've wondered if Maybelle's voice was a result of her heroin and other addictions, or were the addictions a result of her inner-soul and that voice. "I Don't Know What To Do With Myself" is her song, forget Dionne Warwick. "Until the Real Thing Comes Along" and "That's All" ... they get my vote as the most wonderful songs ever for humans in love. And "I Will Never Turn My Back On You." That's the track that Torch Song Trilogy (the play, not the movie) used at it's end ... it's one thing to say you 'love' somebody, it's quite another to promise you'll never turn your back on them. "Oh Lord, What Are You Doing to Me" showcases that mammoth voice that soars one second and hits rock bottom the next. Maybelle died in Ohio after being in a diabetic coma for two years ... she wasn't yet 50. Listen to this (and other) Big Maybelle, you'll hear every tragedy and heartache a human can endure. I've given dozens of cd's of this collection, invariably, the comment is "How could I have gotten this old without ever hearing about her?" Now. You've heard about her. Go buy the collections! It's a tragedy she never found the fame and fortune her talent deserves. You might even buy a couple extra copies, you'll have friends you want to share them with ...

Big Maybelle lived the blues and died before her time. This music is real blues, sung from the heart.

That's All:The Very Best Of Big Maybelle is a fine CD ! It contains the tracks from the 1965 Scepter album The Soul Of Big Maybelle. I Just Don't Know What To Do With Myself is exquisite. If you like the blues, you'll like this CD ! Fans of Big Maybelle will like this the most.

She's a good singer but this is "soul" music and with an orchestra! There is also not one shred of harmonica, guitar or sax on it!

The liner notes are totally incomplete and vague with absolutely no credits or song info (not even a recording date!!!).

Is the name for this collection "Very Best of Big Maybelle" intentionally misleading? I don't know but I would strongly recommend one of the other record companies "Big Maybelle" collections as this one is horrific!!
