Men Are Like Streetcars: Women Blues Singers
by Various Artists
Released: Feb 1999
An endlessly entertaining and revelatory overview of women's place in the blues. This two-CD set includes "no duh" crossover artists like Billie Holiday, Etta James and Irma Thomas, but it also unearths numerous rarities that were needlessly buried along with their creators. No matter how big a blues fan you are, there is much to discover here.
