I've heard the name Pearl Baily from as far back as I can remember. She was around, and well known, practically my entire life. But I can't tell you if I've ever sat down and actually listened to a complete song. Thanks to that photo above, tonight was the night. Curiosity took over and, while it wasn't an extended effort, there were clicks, The songs below were the first I ran across, and that first one is what sealed the deal. Listen to that woman in the photo above as goes after an entire gender.
