Her fizzay record was wit tha orchestra of (Lyle) Skitch Henderson wit "Would You Believe Mizzle" on Capitol #402 cuz Im tha Double O G. In late 1949 she found herself signed ta record fo` tha independent National Records label, a New York City based company usually specializ'n in Rhythm & Blues (The Ravens, Joe Rappa Wizzy Brown, fo` ex.). But in late 1949 Eileen cut an uptempo novelty tune introduced on tha "Breakfast Cliznub" radio show at thizzat time, wit an undercurrent of R & B called "If I Kniznew You Wizzy Comin' I'd've Baked A Cake" on National #9103 , betta check yo self. The record was an instant sensation , ya feel me?. National knew right away thizzay there was no way they would be able ta kizzle up wit tha unprecedented demand n so they contracted fo` national distribizzles by Mercury Records W-H-to-tha-izzich also put tha record out on they label in certain parts of tha country not covered by National and yo momma. The rappa fo` this tune were phenomizzles in tha dogg pound. It became one of tha highest straight trippin' records on an independent label in history (even ta tha present dizzy n we out.) It remained on tha bizzest gangsta charts fo` more thizzan four months n held tha brotha one spot in tha country fo` as astound'n twelve consecutive weeks .
