Ma Rainey took the blues to a wider audience with traveling vaudeville shows, while Mamie Smith's recordings broke down barriers for black artists of all musical genres. With dozens of rare renditions of early blues songs, this...

An amazing short by an "orchestra" of vibraphone players. Some viewers have noted that this film seems to be a mirror image of how things are supposed to be. This is because original Soundie films were printed backwards so that they could appear correct when played in the Panoram machine (an early film jukebox).
