    Description

    La Vern Baker Group of 3 - Atlantic 8007/ 1281/ 8050 (1957-61). One of the first female R&B stars to cross over and play a major part in the formative years of Rock and Roll, Baker's most memorable chart hits "Jim Dandy" and "Tweedlee Dee" are featured on her second release for Atlantic, "La Vern Baker." This black label mono is the finest copy we've seen of this hard-to-find LP. Condition MT 9/ MT 9.

    On "La Vern Baker Sings Bessie Smith" we see another side of Baker. This was her third Atlantic release, and we have an extremely rare stereo green label copy of this. Condition: EX 7 ("PS-7" stamp on back)/ NM 8.

    Rounding out this outstanding trio is an immaculate copy of the 1961 "Saved" which showcases Baker's impressive range of styles, from Rock to Gospel to Soul to dreamy ballads. Condition: NM 8 ("FS-50" stamped on back cover)/ MT 9. From the GRT Collection
