Holle Thee Maxwell "All Kinds'a Blues...All Kinds'a Ways,"

(Maxxemom, 2011, 2019)When glimpsed on the margins of R&B history it is easy to reduce colorful, eccentric figures to "characters." It is only when you hear their remarkable stories in depth that you learn that they truly have character. As the harrowing accounts in her autobiography of her experiences with the famous and infamous make clear, few have more character than the magnificent artist formally known as Holly Maxwell. Though she is not siging as much these days (who is?) this blues CD for a few moons back makes it clear that if there's a show she's the show!
