This concise best-of features a selection of the versatile, groundbreaking R&B and rock & roll singer LaVern Baker's late-1950s hits, including the laid-back, bluesy "Soul on Fire," her 1957 hit "Jim Dandy," and its soundalike follow-up "Jim Dandy Got Married." Both nuanced and powerful, Baker's voice is equally capable of cutting though the raucous, rocking "Jim Dandy," conveying deep emotion on the romantic "Tomorrow Night," and interpreting the chirpy pop arrangement of "Get Up, Get Up (You Sleepy Head)."
