Overview

Saffire -- The Uppity Blueswomen have been making CDs for more than a decade, putting feminism, good sex, and lesbian power into the blues. On Ain’t Gonna Hush! the acoustic trio of Gaye Adegbalola, Andra Faye, and Ann Rabson once again claim the territory of Ma Rainey and Bessie Smith, raving about the female enjoyment of sex on “Footprints on the Ceiling,” getting down in the blues with “Happy Birthday to Me,” and shouting about speaking their minds on “Ain’t Gonna Hush.” For the romantic “Coffee Flavored Kisses” they touch on the swing territory of the Andrews Sisters and fly into a righteous rage on “Blues for Sharon Bottoms,” the saga of a lesbian mother whose own mom took her child away from her. For boogie fans there’s the anthemic “Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox,” while “Once in a While” and “Nobody Ever Touched Me There,” have an old-time country feel. Ain’t Gonna Hush! is pure Saffire, sparkling with these women's unique take on the blues
