    About the "13 weeks at #1 on blues billboard chart" thing, I don't see why it should be surprising :/ Cyndi Lauper is a mainstream artist, blues is not a mainstream music. A lot of people who bought this album are Cyndi fans but not necessarily regular blues listeners. Hence, this CD has a much wider audience than a regular blues CD and it can easily top the blues charts. Doesn't mean anything in particular, doesn't have to do anything with quality but only popularity, it's just very logical. That being said, it's a good album and it proves that she can really sing the blues, which cannot be said about many pop artists I guess so she deserves being acclaimed for that effort of doing non-commercial music successfully.
