The Bess You Is My Woman - Mitchell-Ruff Duo* - Plus Strings And Brass of this compilation seems to be to show how blues changed when it became urban, as can be read in the title and seen briefly in the selection of songs. Leadbelly's "Noted Rider" starts the album and the highly electrified and most definitely urban "Mud in Your Ear" by Muddy Waters ends it.
Meaningful themes are as welcome as rare on compilations, but while it brings variation to this album, the few songs included do not do much toward deepening the understanding of the development of blues or anything like that. The first side is more acoustic and the second more electrified, but neither geographic nor chronological information is given in the sleeve notes.
