Product Notes

'It seems like a long time ago, (and it was) since I heard 'Need a Little Sugar in My Bowl' in a Tower Records store in San Francisco. I owe a tremendous debt to whoever was behind the counter, who told me it was Bessie Smith (mistakenly - it was Nina Simone), and sold me the Columbia Records collection of her songs from the 1930's. I was on my way to a life-long love affair with Bessie and her music. What draws a singer to these songs? There is strength and humor in the face of disappointment and oppression. Above all, there is power - the 'Force' was with Bessie, and when I sing her songs, it's with me, too.' -Ginny Reilly.
