Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD: SEE SEE RIDER (1963)/BLUES BALLADS (1959).
Originally released on Atlantic. Includes liner notes by Marv Goldberg.
SEE SEE RYDER/BLUES BALLADS is a one-CD collection of albums LaVern Baker released in 1963 and 1959, respectively. The tracks are not presented in the original sequence, but the ones dating from 1963 are easily identifiable-they're in stereo and tend to feature prominent bass guitar, then something of a novelty.
The "blues ballads" half of the title shouldn't be taken too literally, since much of the music here was clearly targeted at somebody's idea of the teenage audience. Hence the cornball Dixieland banjo on "Humpty Dumpty Heart" and the Perry Como-ish ballad "Don't Let the Stars Get in Your Eyes." Baker is nonetheless in fine vocal form throughout, investing even the weakest songs with total conviction. And it's worth the price of the CD just to hear her deliver the line "Sometimes he irks me with his line of jive" on "He's a Real Gone Guy."
