Rockin soul from the legendary LaVern Baker – a killer collection of classic 50s work for Atlantic
Records – tunes that went on to have an undeniable influence on the sound of female soul in the 60s! Baker's vocals are amazing right from the start – raw, but with a vocal range that's really impressive – able to soar, dip, and turn on a dime – even when Atlantic
's giving her some larger backings, the sorts of sounds that might hold back another singer – but hardly slow LaVerne at all! The package is the first full LP to bring together Baker's classic singles for Atlantic
– with titles that include "Jim Dandy", "Tra La La", "Bop Ting A Ling", "Tweedle Dee", "Still", "Soul On Fire", "I Can't Love You Enough", and "Get Up Get Up".
(Nice Japanese pressing – with insert!)
