Ref: AMSC1258

(UK Postage Free )


AVID R&B launches with it’s Four Classic R&B album series with a re-mastered 2CD release by LaVern Baker, complete with original artwork, liner notes and personnel details.
“LaVern”; “LaVern Baker”; “Sings Bessie Smith” and “Blues Ballads”
Our first artist on our new label is Rock n Roll Hall of Famer, Miss LaVern Baker. Born Delores Evans in Chicago in 1928, LaVern Baker was following a well-worn path for female singers and playing in clubs around the Chicago area as early as 1951 under such names as Miss Sharecropper and Bea Baker (under which name she recorded for Okeh Records in 1951). As LaVern Baker she signed to Atlantic Records in 1953 and had a series of R&B hits over the next few years including “Tweedle Dee”, “Bop Ting A Ling” and the all-time classic, “Jim Dandy” which would sell a million copies and go on to be voted Number 343 in Rolling Stones Top 500 All Time Greatest Songs as well as being voted as one of the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame’s greatest songs to have shaped Rock N Roll!
Wow! Not a bad legacy to leave behind!
