Known as the Girl with a Tear in her Voice and Miss Rhythm & Blues, Ruth Brown signed for Atlantic in 1948, a year later her second record Teardrops from My Eyes reached the coveted number one spot on Billboard's Rhythm and Blues charts. Oh What A Dream is enveloped in a dream like moment, so to speak.
"As for him, he never knows whether he moves toward her, whether he is driven, whether he has made it up, or whether he is only dreaming".
"Lui ne sait jamais s'il se dirige vers elle, s'il est dirigé, s'il invente ou s'il rêve".
Chris Marker; La Jetée
