Although there are a multitude of box sets chronicling Bessie's entire recorded career, this two-disc, 36-song set sweats it down to the bare essentials in quite an effective manner. Bessie could sing it all, from the lowdown moan of "St. Louis Blues" and "Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out" to her torch treatment of the jazz standard "After You've Gone" to the downright salaciousness of "Need a Little Sugar in My Bowl.

Bessie Smith's wistful voice helped soundtrack the Roaring '20s, and her vital cuts serve as a master class in crafting a bluesy, lonesome mood. The sassy "Aggravatin' Papa" kicks things off as she takes aim at a two-timing beau, while the yearning "A Good Man Is Hard to Find" pairs her pained, at times guttural vocal with a sparse, lonely piano. By the time of the brilliantly doleful "Me and My Gin," she'll have you happy to wallow in a blues state of mind. The Essential Bessie Smith Bessie Smith.
