(Lavern Baker – Shake A Hand)

After the emotional plea yesterday from Sarah, Eddie asks her to join him on the Kentucky trip. They meet up with Bert who tries to belittle her, (but doesnt succeed), and the three of them board the train…

The music today is from one of the great female Rhythm & Blues singers, Lavern Baker whose recording career begun 1n the late 1940’s but had some big hits in the 50’s with cuts like Tweedle Dee and Jim Dandy. This one from 1960 was recorded for and released on the Atlantic label.

  1. the fact that Sarah knows what Bert is trying to do and manages to stay cool in the face of his snubs
    makes it more annoying that Bert seems oblivious to the ‘play’ and does nothing to back her up..huge marrow trembler by the glorious Lavern Baker!
