Please Help Me Get Him off My Mind. 14. 15. I'm Wild About That Thing. 16. You've Got to Give Me Some. 17. Kitchen Man. 18. I've Got What It Takes. As most readers will know, Bessie Smith was unquestionably the greatest blues singer of her day, and is arguably the greatest of all-time. When artists as diverse as Billie holiday, Mahalia Jackson, and Janis Joplin (who before her own death helped pay for a headstone for Bessie's grave) cite Smith as inspiring their own remarkable careers, you know that this is a voice that deserves to be listened to closely and often. When Odetta did her blues album, she suffered from sounding like her back-up was the Dukes of Dixieland. Not every track is perfect but, as a whole, you couldn't ask for more.

Bessie Smith is regarded as The Empress of Blues, and considered one of the most influential vocalists of the 1900s. She was born in 1894 Chattanooga, Tennessee. Her recording contract in 1922 with Columbia Records was a landmark for Black musicians, and she became one of the highest-paid Black performers during that time. Throughout her life, she sang many blues songs. Her vocal style strongly influenced later jazz musicians. Known for her hugely-expressive growl, Smith continues to gain relevancy in current times.
