“Ruth Brown ’65” by Ruth Brown - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1965Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

The former R n B Queen turned accomplished gospel singer now turns to the American songbook as she channels her inner Dinah Washington. Opens promisingly enough with a big band rendition of Nellie Lutcher’s “He’s A Real Gone Guy”, but all the good work is immediately undone with a version of Shirley Temples “On The Good Ship Lollipop”. And so it goes. I don’t need this…
