In the 1950s, Ruth Brown (vocals; born January 30, 1928, died November 17, 2006) was known as “Miss Rhythm,” a testament to her stature as a female rhythm & blues singer whose only serious competition was Dinah Washington. Brown’s two dozen hit records helped Atlantic Records secure its footing in the record industry, for which the young label was referred to as “the House That Ruth Built.”
