AllMusic Review by

Independent Women's Blues is an excellent, four-disc series of early blues and jazz recordings by women -- all come highly recommended for not only the abundance of rarities but also for the quality of the music. Vol. 1, subtitled Mean Mothers, includes selections from Billie Holiday, Ida Cox, and Bessie Brown.
