A Few Forgotten Female Blues Singers

If, out of these 14 female singers recorded in the 1920s, some have managed to put food on the table for a while, none became famous or rich, and most remain completely unknown. What can be said about a singer whose entire work fits on a single-sided 78-RPM record? What circumstances led to this recording? Who decided to do it? For whom was it intended? Why wasn't it followed by more recordings? Hypotheses get lost in places and times themselves forgotten. What remains are these miraculous voices. And us, here, finally able to listen to them.
