Before Etta James, Aretha Franklin and Tina Turner, there was Ruth Brown, the legendary rhythm and blues singer best known for her hits “Mama, He Treats Your Daughter Mean”, “Teardrops in My Eyes” and “5-10-15 Hours”. Her powerhouse voice and sassy squeal brought such worldwide success to the fledgling Atlantic label in the 1950’s that it came to be known as the “House That Ruth Built”.
