Here are the remarkable stories of six dazzlingly talented performers who blazed the R & B trail,the story of the performers' music and also of their struggle against racism and financial exploitation: Ruth Brown and LaVern Baker, two of the most popular female black singers of the 1950s Little Jimmy Scott, whom Madonna calls the only singer who ever really made her cry Charles Brown, master of the club blues" style Floyd Dixon, a more rambunctious fellow-traveller and the earthy, urbane Jimmy Witherspoon, who recorded some of the biggest R & B hits ever.
