"Wild Women Don't Have the Blues", "Wild Women Don't Get the Blues", or simply "Wild Women" is a vaudeville-style blues song recorded by American singer Ida Cox with Lovie Austin's Blues Serenaders in 1924. It has a strong feminist message. The song has been performed by numerous classic female blues singers, including Bessie Smith. Later renditions include those by Francine Reed, Barbara Dane and Nancy Harrow.

"Although singer Nancy Harrow made a strong impression with this debut recording in 1960, she did not lead another record date until 1978 other than a lesser-known effort for Atlantic in 1966. Obviously the years of obscurity were not deserved, for this set is a near-classic. Harrow is heard in her early prime singing such veteran songs as 'All Too Soon,' 'On The Sunny Side Of The Street,' the seven-minute 'Blues For Yesterday,' and the title cut (originally done by Ida Cox in the 1920s)." – All Music Guide

The "golden age" of recordings was from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the LP and the stereo era, where pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and illumination.

This Pure Pleasure LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from the original analogue studio tapes through to the cutting head and was pressed with virgin vinyl at Pallas.
