Product Notes

EU-only collection from the forgotten '50s R&B star. In 1952, aged just 16, Edna McGriff scored her breakthrough hit, 'Heavenly Father'. It would, though, be the only major hit of her career. Her early recordings have been featured on other anthologies. This release picks up the story in 1954 when Edna began a long association with Arthur Shimkin who produced budget records and kiddies' records that he sold through dime stores, book stores, and other places that didn't ordinarily sell records. Shimkin operated under a variety of label names, and Edna McGriff recorded for nearly all of them. To his credit, Shimkin didn't economize on sessions, and Edna's recordings featured the top New York jazz and R&B session guys, as well as glorious arrangements by Sy Oliver, Buddy Lucas, Ray Ellis, and Jimmy Carroll. In addition to Edna McGriff's recordings for Arthur Shimkin's labels, this set also includes her ultra-rare records for Felsted, Savoy and Brunswick.
