Though actual biographical details are sketchy in the historical record, culturally it can be assumed that there was no tougher woman on record than Lucille Bogan (or, in later years, Bessie Jackson -- both are represented here). This Legacy issue compiles her recordings from between 1933 and 1935, after her initial success with OKeh and Brunswick. Indeed, the lion's share of the material issued comes from sides cut for Banner, ARC (Brunswick's chain-store budget line), and Vocalion. Featuring accompaniment by pianist Walter Roland (and bluesman Josh White on one side), there are 20 tracks here that showcase the mythology around Bogan/Jackson. Whether it is the completely raunchy blues in songs like "Barbecue Bess," "Skin Game Blues," and the infamous "Shave 'Em Dry," or the lean-time Depression-era working-class blues signified by "Tired as I Can Be," "Hungry Man's Scuffle," or "Watcha Gonna Do," the effect is the same: unflinching, brutal, powerful, and evocative music that stands tall outside of time and space. This set includes three previously unreleased cuts, two other versions of "Shave 'Em Dry" and the amazing "Till the Cows Come Home." There are more complete collections, but no introduction to Lucille Bogan is more representative than this one. ---Thom Jurek, AllMusic Review

Walter Roland – piano, guitar
Eddie Heywood – piano
Will Ezell – piano
Thomas A. Dorsey – piano
Eddie Miller - piano
Frank James  - piano
Tampa Red – guitar
Bob Campbell  - guitar (prob.)

 

14 track compilation split evenly down the middle between Bogan and her main piano accompanist, Roland, who also doubles on guitar on some tracks. The Bogan sides are a particular delight, featuring a version of "Barbecue Bess" that is nothing short of sublime. As all of these tracks are rescued off highly battered 78s, the fidelity is about what you would expect. But that's no reason to deter you from enjoying this timeless music. --- itunes.apple.com

Hardcore might be the best way to describe the Blues singing of Lucille Bogan. While many of the Classic Blues singers of the 1920s tackled risqué and controversial issues in their songs, Bogan almost exclusively focused on explicit sexual themes, like prostitution, adultery and lesbianism, and social ills such as alcoholism, drug addiction and abusive relationships. She was born in Mississippi but grew up in Birmingham, Alabama. In 1923 she made her first recordings in Atlanta, Georgia. The records apparently didn't sell well because she didn't record again until 1927 for the Paramount and Brunswick labels after moving to Chicago. Between 1933 and 1935 she performed and recorded under the pseudonym Bessie Jackson and worked with pianist Walter Roland. Bogan's recording career came to an end in 1935 and she eventually returned to Birmingham where she reverted to her real name and performed in and managed the group Bogan's Birmingham Busters but did not appear on either of the group's records. In the late 1930s or early l940s, Bogan moved to the West Coast. She died in Los Angeles in 1948 of coronary sclerosis. --- redhotjazz.com
