Rating 4.5 Premature period ending! Music Lover: from GRANADA HILLS, CA US -- September, 20, 2014

It's too bad that this terminates with 1959. While excellent, it would have been better if it also contained the original hit issue of Baker's "Saved." As I recall, this was her "swan song" and was a big hit and played frequently in Los Angeles, for years, in the early to mid 60's but therefore outside of the scope of "1953-1959." Hopefully someday the original master of the single will be located and reissued, and even the original "studio stereo master" from which the mono single was mixed, if it exists!
