Two CD release. A powerful, versatile, big-voiced singer, Varetta Dillard was rated by many pundits as very nearly the equal of peers like Dinah Washington, Lavern Baker, Ruth Brown and Big Maybelle. However although she undoubtedly possessed a magnificent voice, Varetta was, sadly, physically handicapped, which greatly restricted her career. Consequently, although she registered a trio of big R&B hits during the early '50s, she failed to achieve any significant crossover Pop success and as a result, remains something of a cult figure, little known outside of specialist, collectors' circles.
