Big-voiced female jumpers and jivers from the mid-1950s. This CD surveys some of the less-conspicuous examples of Rhythm & Blues The middle-1950s gave rise to a re-birth of the big-voiced female blues shouters who had first been heard on records some three decades earlier with the arrival of Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith and many others who followed in their footsteps. In the immediate aftermath of World War II, cocktail jazz and torchy ballad singers seemed to predominate among the femme record names, what with the popularity of Nellie Lutcher, Dinah Washington, at al holding sway with the recordbuying public. But the brand of jump blues pioneered by Louis Jordan and his followers also gave rise to the return of full-throated female warblers which seemed fully underway by 1953, when Willie Mae "Big Mama" Thornton and Big Maybelle Smith scored their Top 10 R&B successes with "Hound Dog" and "Gabbin' Blues" among others. They would soon be followed by Ruth Brown, Lavern Baker, Etta James and other successful practitioners of the style, whose influence carried over into the pop field with recordings by Georgia Gibbs, Lillian Briggs, Helene Dixon and many more. This CD compilation attempts to survey some of the less-conspicuous examples of big-voiced female R&B shouters, some of whose names have been lost to the archives, and others who went on to fame and fortune as their careers changed direction with the times. Here, then, is a track-by-track rundown of what is known about these artists...
