In 1984, three middle-aged women (guitarist Gaye Adegbalola, bassist Earlene Lewis and pianist Ann Rabson) came together to play blues as Saffire. Their 1990 Alligator CD is still Saffire’s best all-around recording. Even overlooking the novelty of three women giving a female and middle-aged slant to the blues, this is a highly enjoyable and musical set. Assisted on three numbers by Mark Wenner’s harmonica, Saffire plays spirited versions of such tunes as “Middle Aged Blues Boogie,” “Even Yuppies Get the Blues,” “Fess Up When You Mess Up,” “I Almost Lost My Mind” and their theme “Wild Women Don’t Have the Blues.” Recommended.
