Recorded in March 1953 at The Manhattan Center and October 1953 at RCA Victor Studios in New York City.

That Bad Eartha is Eartha Kitt's first  12" album, issued by RCA Victor. The album was recorded in four sessions between March and October 1953 with Henri Rene and His Orchestra. Long-playing records were newly introduced in the mid-1950s and the 10" album was briefly introduced as an album format. Within a few years the 12" album was the format offered to the record buying public, remaining so until the late-1980's. In May 1953 RCA Victor had released a 10" vinyl album RCA Victor Presents Eartha Kitt which reached No. 2 on the pop albums chart and featured 8 songs issued on this album. With the successful introduction of the 12" LP, RCA Victor expanded and re-issued the album with 12 tracks. That Bad Eartha spent 12 weeks on the pop albums chart, peaking at No. 5.

The "golden age" of recordings was from 1955 to 1965, at the beginning of the LP and the stereo era, where pure vacuum tube amplification helped produce recordings demonstrating unparalleled fidelity and warmth, lifelike presence and illumination.

This Speakers Corner LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from the original analogue studio tapes through to the cutting head, and was pressed with virgin vinyl at Pallas. More information under
