    Description

    Ma Rainey "Lost Wandering Blues"/ "Dream Blues" Rare 78 Paramount 12098 (1924). The legendary blueswoman was nearly 40 years old when she recorded these songs, but had just signed her first recording contract the year before. Making up for lost time, Rainey recorded over 100 songs from 1923-1929! This is the first opportunity we have had to offer a Ma Rainey record -- who knows when we'll have another! The record is a bit rough, but does play all the way through on both sides. And the label, with her picture on it, is actually pretty nice. Check out a larger picture at our website! Condition: GD 3.
