LEO THE LION!!! (Merits 10 stars!)
on 20 August 2011
I've always been a Leo Sayer fan, and have several of his LP's. When I saw this collection on Amazon UK, I thought it looked special. And that's the understatement of the year! Now, I have to confess, I've only listened to Disc #1 thus far (about 10 times!). It's really great listening! (And I have every confidence that the second disc will be equally superb!). Virtually all of the hits are here, including the smash reissue/remix of "Thunder In My Heart"!
You can't go wrong with the "Music Club" label...First quality sound and ORIGINAL HITS! This 2-CD set arrived shrink-wrapped, and in pristine condition.
Maybe it is only me, but I have always felt that while Leo was producing great pop tunes through the 70's and into the 80's (and beyond!)...and I've been a major fan, perhaps he was a bit under-appreciated in the music world. But as I listened to the first disc multiple times, I was truly struck by how soulful and bluesy his vocals truly are! Then, in the oustanding liner notes, I read about his songwriting for Roger Daltrey, his playing with Muddy Waters, his work with Ray Parker, Jr., etc., and it all finally clicks! It's a really cool ride listening to his best work as represented in this set, and yeah, Leo Sayer is a premier pop star...but a whole lot more! Buy this collection, and enjoy the music of the great Leo Sayer!
