£12.99
CD / Product Number: DGF44

Thought by many to be the greatest Blues singer the world will ever know, this is volume 5 of an 8 part set comprising her complete recordings. No one could equal her in her control of a deep, rich voice and the drama and intensity of her performances. She blurred the lines between jazz and blues and her art truly transcended the notion of categories.
23 tracks remastered by John RT Davies. Every effort have been made to keep chronological order, and to maintain the atmosphere of these superbly re-mastered performances. The series also features previously unreleased material and alternate takes.
