Miss Rhythm by Ruth Brown

Before Etta James, Aretha Franklin, and Tina Turner, there was Ruth Brown, the legendary rhythm and blues singer best known for her hits (Mama) He Treats Your Daughter Mean, Teardrops from My Eyes, and 5-10-15 Hours. Her powerhouse voice and sassy squeal brought worldwide success to the Atlantic label in the 1950s. But it took a decades-long battle with Atlantic to receive her full royalties, which inspired the creation of the Rhythm and Blues Foundation.In Miss Rhythm, the singer shares candid recollections: the early days of R&B; the racism she endured on the road; and her abusive husbands and lovers. In the 80s and 90s, Brown earned a Tony and Grammy Award and a role as Motormouth Maybelle in John Waters cult film Hairspray. Miss Rhythm is a story of trial and triumph, and of chart-topping success despite seemingly impossible odds.

One of the artists assigned to Herb Abramson was Bobby Darin, and it took some time for Abramson or anyone at Atlantic to know what to do with him. For Ruth, it was unusual enough just seeing a white performer on the label. A straightforward boogie woogie underpinned by Stoller on piano, it was highlighted by Everett Barksdale on guitar and the always distinctive King Curtis on tenor sax. I hereby confirm that I have read and agree with the privacy policy.

A two-CD set ranging from Brown 's early hits to engaging obscurities and rarities, Miss Rhythm offers a fine overview of her Atlantic years. There are numerous Brown albums that are well worth acquiring, but for those interested in exploring her early music for the first time, Miss Rhythm is an excellent place to start.
