AllMusic Review by

WJMK: Great Ladies of Rock 'N' Roll 50's includes 25 pop and R&B tracks combining outstanding material from Dinah Washington, LaVern Baker, and Ruth Brown, along with one-hit wonders Gogi Grant ("The Wayward Wind"), Dodie Stevens ("Pink Shoe Laces"), and Bobbettes ("Mr. Lee"). While the packaging is horrible, the sound quality is decent, making this an affordable way to pick up these tunes on the Collectables label.
