Blues singer Trudy Lynn remembers her parents' collection of 78 rpm records being both fragile and durable. She recalls their brittle quality: "You got a whupping back in those days if you'd break one of them," she says. "They were like glass." Yet the songs that spilled forth from those recordings have remained with her for decades.

Several years ago a friend gave Lynn a collection of songs by women blues singers from the 1920s, '30s and '40s. "That's where I've been the past few years," Lynn says. "I started listening to what they were singing, and it's like they knew my life before I even came here. "Like my mother says, 'There's nothing new. It's just new to you.' That's where this baby started."

This baby is "Royal Oaks Blues Cafe," the defining recording of Lynn's career thus far. The Houston native has been performing for more than 50 years, but never before has the dynamic range of her voice been so sympathetically captured and brilliantly projected on record. She purrs, growls, whispers and blares the blues, with exquisite backing, particularly by collaborators Steve Krase on harmonica and John Del Toro Richardson on guitar. Producer Rock Romano expertly bottled their interactions. Krase, who has shared stages with Lynn for more than 20 years, says he "had no idea she had that range. Some songs she'll start with a growl and all of the sudden bring it up and hit a high note. I'm sure she's done that before, but I hadn't noticed it. I hear some different nuance in her voice on every single song."

Lynn's goal for the album was simple: to reinvent those timeless songs and, in doing so, restore the legacy of some performers who had been forgotten during the years as the blues steered toward a format dominated by men with guitars. Lynn and Krase's song selection was smart and sympathetic to her voice, which updates songs originally made by artists like Clara Smith, Eloise Bennett, Bea Booze and Viviane Greene. ~Andrew Dansby
