This is one of the best CDs I have ever gotten. Lots of songs by lots of Rock & Roll songstresses from the early days of rock and roll. ALL THE BEST! I can't stop listening to it. I have lots of Oldies But Goodies, but this is one of the best!

There were five ladies who held their own on the charts throughout the earliest years of the birth of R&R, and three are among the first four appearing in this compilation from Collectables. Two are in the R&R Hall Of Fame - and the other one should be.

LaVern Baker, who leads off with her late 1956/early 1957 smash Jim Dandy (# 1 R&B/# 17 Billboard Pop Top 100 billed to LaVern Baker and The Gliders) was inducted in 1991. Brenda Lee, who appears in the 4th track with her 1960 hit Sweet Nothin's (# 4 Billboard Pop Hot 100/# 12 R&B) was so honoured in 2002. Connie Francis, who racked up 56 Pop hits, and saw 8 cross over to the R&B charts, including the featured tune Lipstick On Your Collar (# 5 Hot 100/# 10 R&B in summer 1959), is still on the outside looking in! How ridiculous is that?

Also inducted (in 1993) were Ruth Brown, who appears at track 8 with her 1957 hit, Lucky Lips, (# 6 R&B/# 25 Top 100), and Dinah Washington at track 12 with her 1959 mega-hit What A Diff'rence A Day Makes (# 4 R&B/# 8 Hot 100), although in her case she was brought in in the "early influence" category. A distinction without a difference in my opinion.

The sound quality is excellent on all cuts, and with the fold-out insert you get artist-by-artist and track-by-track comments written by Al Fichera. Although I do question his entry on The Co-Eds and their tune Love You Baby All The Time where he says "this hit single was released in 1956 by the Old Town label." If it was a hit it had to have been on some obscure chart because it certainly did not make either the Billboard Pop Top 100 or the R&B charts.
