This album is a reissue of tracks produced and released by Sunnyland Slim on his Airway lable in the early '80s. Sunyland served as a mentor and promoter of Bonnie, Sara, and Zora, taking them on tours which gave them national exposure in the beginning of their professional careers.
In addition to these fine female vocalists, the sessions also feature the brilliant guitar work of Eddie Taylor, Byther Smith, and Hubert Sumlin, along with the fine bassist of Bob Stroger. An added bonus are two previously unreleased tracks from Earwig's historic 1979 session, Old Friends, with Slim on piano, Floyd Jones on bass and vocals, Kansas City Red on drums and vocals, and Honeyboy Edwards on guitar.
"Historic blues ... a preservationist's delight!" -Blues Connection on Central New York
"... three dynamite female divas ... Bonnie Lee, Big Time Sarah, and Zora Young ... know how to use their voices to jam the band and create a thick, juicy slab of the blues ... Put this on your player and turn your place into a smoky, Chicago barroom after midnight." -Icon
