1. AllMusic - Scott Yanow
This consistently enjoyable release serves as a sampler of some of the top female blues singers active at the time in Chicago. There are two songs apiece from Grana Louise, Shirley Johnson, Big Time Sarah, Gloria Shannon, Mary Lane, and Pat Scott, and one song from Zora Young and Maggie Burrell. Backed by a four-piece rhythm section, occasional horns and (on two songs) voices, each of the vocalists sounds quite inspired. Among the high points are such songs as "Good Woman Go Bad," "Gonna Have a Murder on Your Hands," "One Eyed Man," and "Today I Sing the Blues." This CD serves as proof that Chicago is still the blues capital, and will lead listeners to search for other recordings by these talented singers.
