The Blues is life and life is the Blues. It covers from the first cry of a newborn to the last gasp of a dying man. Its the very existence. And Victoria Spivey took the blues business very seriously, from her many recording contracts to her performance schedule. These thirteen original compositions were written specifically for this recording, and range from a No Friends Blues or a Slick Chick Blues to a Humble Blues and even A Sausage Blues.
