Originally released in 1957. This numbered audiophile edition pressed on 180g vinyl, housed in a Stoughton jacket.

The dynamite sound of 'Miss Rhythm' and the singer that helped build an iconic label: Ruth Brown's Rock & Roll bristles with electrifying emotion, vocal power, and r&b-fueled energy.

Originally released in 1957, and reissued here in audiophile quality for the first time in partnership with Atlantic Records' 75th anniversary, the set remains a testament to one of the most pioneering and talented vocalists to ever command a stage.

In an era dominated by big-throated vocalists, few - if any - came grander than Brown. The singer, whose repeat million-selling '50s success with Atlantic Records led many to call the then-indie label 'The House That Ruth Built,' charted two dozen R&B hits in the span of a decade for the fledgling imprint.

Rightly coined 'Miss Rhythm,' the extroverted Brown put Atlantic on the national map, became the best-selling female musician of the '50s, and established a precedent that would ultimately lead to Grammy and Tony Awards. Her early works have lost none of their fire or flair.
