“This superbly presented collection of songs by female pioneers in country music is a celebration of feminism.” The Times
“Illuminating. Prior to any collective theoretical consensus of feminism these women were already doing it on their own terms.” The Guardian
“A superb compendium of honky-tonk women” Q
“An unsurprisingly excellent emission from the imperious Soul Jazz stable.” Clash
