• R&B Queens of New Orleans - Featuring: Irma THOMAS, Katie WEBSTER, Barbara GEORGE & Barbara LYNN

IRMA THOMAS has ruled as the acknowledged 'R&B Queen Of New Orleans' for many decades, although back in the late 50s/early 60s, while she was still princess-in-waiting, she had a number of rivals, notably KATIE WEBSTER, BARBARA GEORGE and BARBARA LYNN.

This unique compilation is built around Irma's first eight singles, which includes her early hits 'Don't Mess With My Man', 'It's Raining' and 'Two Winters Long'.

Katie Webster is represented by three tracks, which showcase her Swamp Blues roots.

Barbara George famously topped the US R&B charts with her first record, 'I Know (You Don't Love Me No More)', which is included herein alongside her other R&B hits, 'You Talk About Love' and 'Send For Me'.

Barbara Lynn topped the R&B charts with 'You'll Lose A Good Thing', and also registered with 'Second Fiddle Girl' and 'You're Gonna Need Me'.
