Little Miss Cornshucks from a 1951 Coral recording. She was recorded by Atlantic Records' Ahmet Ertegun just for himself in 1943 years before he had a record label because he liked her voice so much. She had a little girl act, with her hair tied with a ribbon, an image that she carried over from her vaudeville days. She recorded on Chicago's Sunbeam label in 1947 and had been a major draw at the city's Club De Lisa by the time she was 18 in 1941. She also opened the Rhumboogie and also recorded on Miltone, Aladdin, Coral and Chess.
