Sealed 1980 Gatefold. Original Smithsonian Museum Shop Price Tag On Rear Shrink. 4 1/2 Stars All Music Guide. "Hats Off To Rosetta Reitz For Putting Together An Incredible Catalog Of Women's Classic Blues On Her Rosetta Label. Besides Filling A Glaring Gap In The Blues Record Bins, The Label's Various Compilations And Single-Artist Discs Feature Both Well-Known And Obscure Female Blues Singers, Bringing To Life A Black Woman's Take On A World Defined In Many Ways By The Great Migration Of Southern Blacks To Northern Cities Like Chicago And New York (Mainly To Escape Draconian Jim Crow Laws And Find Better Paying Jobs).
