There is plenty of fire in Saffire -- The Uppity Blues Women, a trio of feisty multiracial middle-aged acoustic blues femmes who, rather surprisingly, were one of the top sellers from Alligator's male-dominated, plugged-in roster. This generous 20-track, 75-minute compilation collects highlights from the threesome's previous seven Alligator albums, spanning 1990-2001. Led by pianist and co-founder Ann Rabson's barroom honky tonk piano and Gaye Adegbalola's gutsy vocals and guitar, the band hit a nerve for a previously untapped audience of older, predominantly female blues fans. With double entendre lyrics flying ("Silver Beaver," "Elevator Man," "Middle Aged Blues Boogie," "Wild Women Don't Have the Blues"), the aggressive sexuality boasted in the majority of these songs may have seemed sassy at the time, but was just a throwback to the similarly raucous style of classic female blues singers such as Ma Rainey, Sippie Wallace, and Ida Cox. The big difference was that Saffire could play their instruments, and play them well, which added a layer of self-confidence to their shtick. With three distinctive singers and a strong sense of pacing, the music never gets boring, although at 20 cuts, this does start to feel repetitious in spots. There are no rarities, so fans won't need to take the plunge, but for newcomers this is a perfect introduction to a unique female group that proved it could hold its own in the testosterone-heavy world of blues music.

J.J. Cale: Big Brother o' Blues

More than eight years after his death, there is still no getting away from the vital wellspring of music that is the works of J.J. Cale. With his unique alloy of blues, folk, country and jazz, the man worshipped by Clapton, who lived for a while in a trailer, is still one of rock's most influential hermits.

Ray Charles, a Stylist Under the Influence

A founding father of soul, whose career spanned half a century, Ray Charles cannot be reduced to a handful of famous hits. He is above all the master of the high-end musical crossover that makes an art of mixing genres, approaching one to better embrace the other. Ray Charles secularised gospel, enriched the blues, played jazz, sang country and approached rock'n'roll. Let's take a look back at his unique style based on the five listed here.
