He even played piano on many of his recordings.

Many of the women presented here have been neglected and rarely, if ever, have appeared on CD, plus a few more familiar names & titles.

30 tracks in all from Micki Williams' haunting 'The Sun Forgot To Shine This Morning', Terry Timmons voodoo inspired 'Evil Eyed Woman', Dakota Staton working her magic on 'Abracadabra', Anita Tucker taking it 'Slow, Smooth & Easy', odd one out Helene Dixon with her version of Chuck Berry's 'Roll Over Beethoven', Marie Knight's title song with heavenly choir and two stomping La Vern Baker's to finish. All of which shows the rich variety of music these women produced under the guidance of Howard Biggs.
