Supernatural love with LaVern!

The 50's was a cavalcade of start-up record labels, and Atlantic was the best. They swung with R'n'B, kicked with Rock'n'Roll, swayed with Soul, and later roared with Rock. Their roster is a dream line-up beyond comprehension. But in the beginning, in the early 50's, it was called "the house that Ruth built" because of the sassy hits of Ruth Brown. Quick on her heels was the blazing belter LaVern Baker, whose "Soul On Fire" was torrid enough to steambath New York.

"Voodoo Voodoo" was burned into acetate in 1958, at the height of Rock'n'Roll and her fame. In a head-scratching lapse, Atlantic didn't deliver this hot plate until two years later. Rock was in a lull and the single missed its mark. But quality is timeless; here's LaVern to whip you onto your feet!
