So, Jill, you got me going. Your choices are great. But you made me think of who I really like. Here are a few more.
Lucinda Williams

Koko Taylor

Marianne Faithfull

Beth Hart

Aretha Franklin

Dolores Keane

Linda Thompson

Sammi Smith

Ruth Brown

Well, Jill, you really got me going. Thanks for the stimulus (I guess) to waste a couple of hours tracking down more of my favorites. Many of these, I guess, are more Big Mama singers than girl singers–but the closest to a girl singer (the last one on the list) is the one that really knocked my socks off.

Lucinda Williams

Koko Taylor

Marianne Faithfull

Beth Hart

Aretha Franklin

Ruth Brown

Sammi Smith

Dolores Keane

Toni Childs

Linda Thompson
