The blues are loved around the world because it inhabits a deep level of passion, sexiness, self expression (or self deprecation) and honesty that flows from the mouths of its singers and permeates any room with thick emotional truth. The blues is about human flaws, sadness and at times, finds the humor and irony of the rough spell of life.
On this mixtape of vintage Blues, we have a track from Empress of the Blues Bessie Smith. Alongside her, we've got “Doctor Doctor Blues,” is a story of Memphis Minnie being cut off from drinking and smoking and Big Mama Thornton's “Willie Mae's Blues,” which is full of woe for a lost lover. I threw in Etta James singing her version of “Purple Rain” for some fun and good measure. You might want to use this BitchTape as an elixir to whatever ails you… or you'll catch the blues in what would otherwise be a pleasant day!
