Voodoo Voodoo !

Delores Williams was born on November 11, 1929, in Chicago. Williams began her career with Fletcher Henderson's big band in 1947. She adopted the stage name Lavern Bakershortly afterwards. In 1953, Baked signed with Atlantic rcords. In 1955, LaVern had her first hit with "Tweedle Dee." Other hits, including "Jim Dandy" and "See See Rider," followed. Simply put, LaVern Baker, one of the greatest vocalists in history, could sing anything because she had a stunning voice that with little effort could crack walls, and yet her ballad singing was wonderfully sensitive.

Hey great songs here lately!
Funny, I'm here just a'cussin' and drinkin' to "Saved". Hell, if I listen to it one more time today it's just possible I'll be doin' the hoochie-coo!
Thanks for the Jeepers Creepers. Actually, that's one of my favorite songs. I have been looking for the 1939 Looney Tunes Porky Pig piece by the same name with Pinto Colvig playing the ghost. It's a wonderful cartoon IMO, but the song is what really does it for me, cartoon ghost in high-top sneakers, all that. Anybody got a copy they can dub the audio from? "Calling Car 6 and 7/8's, Car 6 and 7/8's...." : "Bud-dee bu-dee... that's me!"
