    LaVern Baker
    Saved CD

    One of the greatest female Rhythm & Blues singers of all time with what is quite possibly her greatest album.  LaVern Baker was one of the two songstresses (Ruth Brown was the other) who helped make Atlantic Records the powerhouse label it became during the 1950s and the early '60s.  Saved collects a number of classic singles and their flipsides whose diversity and unflagging quality are testament to the incredible talent that she possessed.

    Title track, written by Leiber and Stoller, is perhaps the most unapologetically gospel-sounding track ever to hit the Top 40, and indeed Elvis Presley, a big LaVern Baker fan, reprised her potent arrangement on his 1968 Comeback Special.  Its flipside, Don Juan, is another Leiber-Stoller classic, one much more earthy as the title suggests!  Then come 16 more classic Atlantic sides (plus 6 bonus tracks!), all up to the lofty standard of the title cut.
