LaVern Baker, Part 1 (1949-54)
A look at how one of R&B's greatest voices, LaVern Baker, got her start. It's part one of a two-part feature on the early career of LaVern Baker. She began her recording career with Eddie "Sugarman" Penigar Orchestra in 1949, then recorded a few sides as Little Miss Sharecropper on National Records. None of her early records made the national charts, but you can hear LaVern Baker evolve as an artist as the music moved closer and closer from Rhythm & Blues to Rock n' Roll.
