Throughout history, countless women have left their mark on the blues, fighting their way to the forefront of a largely male-dominated scene, often with little recognition.

These women paved the way for so many musicians, and the blues would not be what it is today without their influences. "Talking about the facts of life" is the central theme of this music. Whether it's relationship problems, financial issues or discrimination, from Bessie Smith through Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Nina Simone, Etta James, Koko Taylor and Janis Joplin, to more recent Blues Women like Bonnie Raitt and Susan Tedeschi, these women tell the real story and give advice. The Tuff Lovers pay tribute to these great ladies who have played such an important part in the history of the Blues. Female blues at its best!
