Queen of the Blues  sang as an expression of her deeply rooted connection to her youth growing up in Bartlett, Tennessee. According to her biography, Koko reflected on how a song she had learned from her father in the cotton fields, appeared on her album Old School, alongside her own compositions. “She grew up in blues culture, as a sharecropper and learning from listening to other singers, not just to records,” said Bruce Iglauer, Alligator Records founder. Koko Taylor has been an inspiration to women around the world.
