Description

This compilation reissues Rusty Warren's first two LPs, 'Songs For Sinners' (1959) and 'Knockers Up!' (1960), both of which were huge sellers, the former selling some 750,000 copies, while the latter was her biggest album, making the US Top 10 and selling more than 2 million copies.

Known for much of her career as "The Knockers Up Girl!", and described by one enterprising journalist as "The Mother Of The Sexual Revolution", Rusty Warren was a genuine trailblazer in the late 50s and throughout the 60s, taking recorded comedy into areas which had hitherto been strictly taboo.

Offering comedy songs and routines about sex, presented strictly from a female perspective, Rusty was bawdy, daring, controversial and hugely successful, in the face of a full-scale media blackout and minimal frontline marketing support.

In the early 00s, she enjoyed something of a 'comeback' in the US, when her 'Bounce Your Boobies' opened Air America's Randi Rhodes Show every Friday.

Few of her albums have ever been reissued on CD, and these two LPs are unavailable elsewhere.
