Legendary Blues: Women of Blues is a rather skimpy compilation of ten songs by familiar artists of the genre, including Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, and Dinah Washington. Also included are lesser-known tracks by Hattie McDaniel ("I Thought I'd Do It"), Pearl Dickson ("Little Rock Blues"), and Bertha Chippie Hill ("Pratt City Blues"). If you stumble across this disc in the bargain bin, pick it up.
