Format: 2CD
Bar-code: 5060143497605
Cat No: NOT2CD760


There is so much to savour in this 2CD compilation: Ruth Brown who certainly sparked the whole Atlantic Records topping the R&B Charts with “Mama He Treats Your Daughter Mean”, Big Mama Thornton’s “Hound Dog” a Lieber and Stoller song that spent seven weeks at No.1 on the R&B charts and ultimately inspired a cover version by Elvis Presley that sold many millions, and Maybelle who rocks it, shakes it up and more on Ring Dang Dilly. This collection also includes classic tracks by Irma Thomas, Wynona Carr, Sugar Pie DeSanto, Helen Humes and others.
