She is not only the legendary Queen of Rhythm & Blues, she also had a baby they called Rock 'n' Roll! Her fantastic voice is genre-spanning - here is the proof!

Selected songs from Ruth Brown's career first released between 1953 and 1962 are uniquely compiled here.

Included are the rare re-recordings of her classics '5-10-15 Hours' and 'Mama, He Treats Your Daughter Mean', which she recorded in 1958.

In addition to rock songs and teenage ballads, you can also hear mambo, gospel and soul roots.

Three recordings for the US Philips label in the early 1960s can be considered rarities: 'Walk With Me, Lord', 'Jim Dandy' and 'Sea Of Love'.

As a bonus, there are her live recordings from the 'Rhythm And Blues Revue', never before released on CD!

Of course her juke box classics are also included: 'This Little Girl's Gone Rockin'!'

The 36-page color booklet includes the biography written by Chicago music journalist Bill Dahl, rare photos, illustrations and discographic information.

The Queen of Rhythm and Blues

This compilation of 31 songs impressively shows the extremely interesting career of Ruth Brown. Starting in the early 1950s, when she sang her way to the top of the R&B charts with her unique voice, which already had a high recognition value at that time, and thus created a solid financial basis for her label Atlantic Records, through the time in the mid 1950s, when she easily made the transition from her rather jazzy style of rhythm and blues to rock 'n' roll and teenage ballads and to early soul sounds, gospel and twist in the early '60s.

Mama, He Treats Your Daughter Mean

The title song 'Mama, He Treats Your Daughter Mean' is one of Ruth Brown's greatest achievements, which she recorded several times throughout her career and which has been part of her regular live repertoire for decades.
