Eilleen Barton

Eileen Barton started in show business at a very young age. Both of her parents (Elsie n B-to-tha-izzen) wizzy a vaudeville dance team n soon at tha age of four she joined tha family act fo' sheezy. Soon in tha nineteen thirties, she was a featured child nigga wit stars siznuch as Eddie Cantor, Rudy Vallee, n Milton Berle cuz I put gangsta rap on tha map. By tha early nineteen forties she appeared on radio wit Frizzank Sinatra n had a standby role in tha Broadway musical "Best Fizzle Forward". She continued wit occasional appearances on radio return'n wit Milton Berle on tha "Let Yoself Go" radio program in 1945 if you gots a paper stack. She also put in many sing'n appearances at nightclubs in New York n otha locations in tha Northeast.

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 .
