Various - Better Boot That Thing - Great Women Blues Singers Of The 1920's FLAC album

Sometimes referred to as The Empress of the Blues, Smith was the most popular female blues singer of the 1920s and 1930s. She is often regarded as one of the greatest singers of her era and, along with Louis Armstrong, a major influence on subsequent jazz vocalists.

Her career had started back in the early 1920s, and from there on, she became a successful jazz and blues recording artist, being critically acclaimed to the ranks of Ethel Waters and Bessie Smit. ore . Year: 1992.

The Queen of the Blues’ Mamie Smith has the distinction of being the first Africa. a Rainey. Female artists owned the blues in the 1920s. Well You Don’t Say: 10 White Singers We Once Thought Were. She was ranked number 58 on the 100 Best Singer’s of All Time list by Rolling Stone, making her the youngest singer on the list. Who's the best white blues singer of the 1960s: Mick.

These best blues singers are known for their great voices and music that will stand the test of time. Note that this ranking is for blues artists only - no best blues/blues rock bands here. Many of the greatest bluesmen, old blues singers, and female blues artists are sadly no longer with us, but their legacies live on, often in rock artists who sold millions more records with versions of classic blues songs written by these great blues legends.

The first big star of the 1920s vaudeville circuit, she worked for years without a record contract, even while helping young singers such as Bessie Smith get started. She also gave a boost to a young band leader named Louis Armstrong. Her fame was immortalized by August Wilson's Broadway hit, "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," which was named for one of her signature songs. Georgia blues singer Lucille Hegamin was a self-taught musician whom Victoria Spivey helped get signed to a tour with Jelly Roll Morton. Some of Hegamin's most popular songs, such as "Alabamy Bound" and "Land of Cotton Blues" reflect her roots. Another southerner, Memphis Minnie, "Queen of Country Blues," named herself for her adopted home town. Memphis Minnie played banjo and guitar from the time she was 7. Her guitar is in the background of "I'm A Bad Luck Woman," from her "Best Of" album, "When the Levee Breaks.

But blues music also thrived far outside the scope of the dominant white American culture in the early 20th century. In Jazz Age speakeasies, dive bars, and private parties, blue singers had the freedom to explore alternative sexuality, and on a rare occasion, they even expressed it in song. Ma Rainey’s protégé Bessie Smith was bisexual and promiscuous on the road. In lyrics, they talk about ‘bulldykers,’ which is they called butch lesbians at that time, or ‘BD women,’ ‘BD’ being short for bulldykers, Philipson says. Clearly, these lesbian-leaning blues singers were forging their own paths in a shifting cultural landscape. No time to marry, no time to settle down, Bessie Smith sang on 1926’s Young Woman’s Blues. I’m a young woman, and I ain’t done runnin’ around. I am an enormous admirer of Gladys Bentley; I have many of her original recordings, and someone ought to do a biography of her!
