Ruth Brown - Rock & Roll (Atlantic 8004)

This is a 1957 album from Atlantic which includes most of Ruth Brown’s biggest hits.

These are vinyl rips by Joan K complete with the atmospheric ‘noise’, so once again it’s like popping round to your friend’s house to listen to a few discs being spun on the gramophone. The download includes a folder of Joan's label shots, EP covers and one of those wonderful Atlantic singles still in its original sleeve. The download scans are more numerous and larger than can be shown here. A visual treat!

Converted to 192 kbps mp3s from m4a files.

Thank for this little insight. I have this LP. I am a vinyl only DJ here in Sheffield UK and so many tracks off this LP are boss floor fillers.
