Above: Labels for Atlantic 1004 released in August 1953 and Atlantic 1047 released in October 1954. These were her first and third records for the label. In writer's credits, wonder if "Jermet" was Jerry Wexler and Ahmet Ertegun of Atlantic Records?

From Pete Grendysa (4/30/05): "(Set My) Soul On Fire" was listed in the Progressive Music Song Contracts book (supplied to me by Herb Abramson) as by Ahmet Ertegun and Jerry Wexler. Those crazy R&B writin' fools.
