House Rent Blues - Bessie Smith - Womans Trouble Blues
Label: Snapper Music - SMDCD 242 • Format: 2x, CD Compilation • Country: UK • Genre: Blues •
This is a House Rent Blues - Bessie Smith - Womans Trouble Blues acceptable double-disc compilation of the great Bessie Smith 's work from her Okeh and Columbia sides.
Given that it's on Snapper, it doesn't suffer from some of the terrible mastering that some other labels issued in the past. There are 40 cuts spread out here, including both parts of "Empty Bed Blues," back to back, which is a plus.
It is both a fitting introduction -- with some decent liner notes to add context -- as well as a solid compilation for those unwilling to delve completely into the Sony Legacy collections.
