The first-ever CD release featuring the recordings of Lillian Briggs, who achieved superstar status at the dawn of the 50's rock era with a string of exciting singles, though she never got to make an album of her own. She was called 'The High Priestess of Rock and Roll' and the press named her 'Queen' at the same time that Elvis was 'King,' but in reality Briggs could sing it all - jive, bop, blues, rockabilly, ballads and swing. To top it all off, she could also play a mean trombone! With her platinum blonde hair, brassy personality and skin-tight gowns, the former laundry truck driver quickly became a top headliner throughout the world. Though best-remembered today for her biggest hit, the Jon Hendricks classic 'I WANT YOU TO BE MY BABY,' this jam-packed 33-track Jasmine compilation offers ample proof that Lillian was no 'one-hit wonder' and contains nearly all of her known commercial recordings.
