Two rompin, boppin jump and jive numbers from one of the sassiest gals who ever laid it down! And lay it down Little Esther most certainly does here! Recorded with Johnny Otis orchestra for the Federal label back in the early 50s this rare single boasted 2 sides penned by the legendary Lieber & Stoller. Already well into her career at this stage, Esther was still only 17 years old when she stepped into the studio but delivers the vocals with a characteristically confident and assured delivery. Hollerin And Screamin features a rock steady jiving pattern, some cool chiming percussive accompaniment and wonderfully under-stated guitars, while Turn The Lamps Down finds Esther performing a call and response duet with Little Willie Littlefield over a shuffle rhythm. You gotta love it!
