LAVERN/LAVERN BAKER presents Baker's first two albums (from 1956 and 1953, respectively) on a single disc. Baker, of course, was the first great female star of early rock & roll. Like much early rock, her music has a wonderfully brash spirit.
The musical styles range from jump blues ("Lots and Lots of Love") and quasi-doo-wop novelties (the often-covered "Jim Dandy") to jazzy, Johnny Ace-influenced ballads ("You'll Be Crying"). Whatever the style, Baker's sound is unique-a soulful combination of unbridled lungpower and sophisticated phrasing. With the possible exception of the Chantels' Arlene Smith, Baker had no equal until the arrival of Aretha Franklin.
