Ida Cox's Wild Women Don't Have the Blues was recorded at the end of her career. Surprisingly, Cox's voice hadn't faded away -- she could belt out a song with nearly as much power as she did in her early career. In fact, Wild Women Don't Have the Blues ranks as one of her finest albums. Not only is Cox in fine voice, the support Coleman Hawkins and his small group lends is strong and sympathetic, making this album one to treasure.
