20 ORIGINAL ALBUMS BY 9 POWERFUL WOMEN

Welcome to the Rock n Roll Hall of Femme! Celebrate the women who rock, with these 20 original albums by nine iconic female icons from ROCK & ROLL, RHYTHM & BLUES, COUNTRY & WESTERN and POP. Beyond genre and gender, you will find a host of hits among these 265 titles, from Let's Have a Party via Walkin'; Back to Happiness or Lipstick on Your Collar to Don't Be Cruel and Jim Dandy. Rockabilly Queen Wanda Jackson opens with four original LPs. Britain is represented by teenage star Helen Shapiro. Connie Francis, America's pop queen of the 1950s and 1960s, delivers a Rock & Roll- and a Country album. Brenda Lee, the rocking "Little Miss Dynamite", is also featured with two excellent albums. Patti Page shines on cover versions of songs some of her male colleagues made famous. Dee Dee Sharp represents the Twist on her LP. Lavern Baker and Ruth Brown are legends of Rhythm & Blues, both with four albums each. R&B vocalist Wynona Carr is only known to connoisseurs so far. Her rare LP "Wild Wonderful Wynona" from 1959 appears here on CD for the first time. This lovingly remastered 10-CD-box-set is supplemented with additional bonus tracks by these great artists.
