• Annisteen ALLEN - Fujiyama Mama - The Solo Singles, 1945-1955

In the immediate post war years, through to the mid-1950s and the emergence of rock and roll, African American audiences were entertained by a huge number of quite remarkable talents. The subject of this collection, Annisteen Allen was one of the greatest vocalists of the early r&b and jazz markets.

Includes her hit 'Baby I'm Doing It' which was an answer disc to 'Baby Don't Do It' by The '5' Royales and of course her most famous song, the original 'Fujiyama Mama'.

Strangely Annisteen was undervalued despite the fact she could hold her own at any time with the major femme stars of the day like Ruth Brown and LaVern Baker. Her strong vocals have long been popular with blues collectors and rock and roll fans alike and she was indeed one of the greatest vocalists of the era. This collection is the first to concentrate solely on her solo records.

Fully detailed liner notes.
