VARETTA DILLARD HAD A POWERFUL, VERSATILE, BIG VOICE AND WAS RATED BY MANY PUNDITS AS BEING THE EQUAL OF PEERS LIKE DINAH WASHINGTON, LA VERN 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 COLLECTOR’S CIRCLES. THIS BRILLIANT 2CD SET CONTAINS MOST BUT NOT QUITE ALL OF VARETTA’S OUTPUT. BRILLIANT ******
