5.0 out of 5 stars Great album!
Picked up on Rene (pronounced Reen apparently) on a Dave Godin's compilation. If you are a deep soul fan you should hear this cd, it's great! She uses the full range of her alto voice to deliver plaintive mid tempo songs about the highs and lows of teen years. Backed by the same Stax musicians behind Otis - you get the picture!

3.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting but....
The CD Age is now down to the No Hit Wonders which is fair enough but why is there yet no Jan Bradley? She had a stack of singles issued mostly on Chess and is actually a Genuine One Hit Wonder.
I don't doubt that Wendy Rene may have been a bigger name if she'd had the radio plays.For one thing she has a great name and no doubt may have stood a chance like Carla...

Chart success is a crass measure of quality, and this marvellous cd rather proves the point.

The CD Age is now down to the No Hit Wonders which is fair enough but why is there yet no Jan Bradley? She had a stack of singles issued mostly on Chess and is actually a Genuine One Hit Wonder.
I don't doubt that Wendy Rene may have been a bigger name if she'd had the radio plays.For one thing she has a great name and no doubt may have stood a chance like Carla Thomas before her.Photos of her are few and far between -I think Billboard carried one of a dissolved head
Its very difficult to be a One Hit Wonder but she never even managed that.Maybe the right song the way Carla Thomas touched on high school pop with Gee Whiz Look at his Eyes.
Ask yourself-if YOU were a dj would YOU have played her single of After Laughter.I don't think I would because she was a long way off other black teens who'd cut singles-Claudine Clark,Nella Dodds of radio friendly high school pop and her songs were mainly depressing.
Jan Bradley had the perfect idea when she became a singer songwriter out of neccesity by moulding her own brand of pop music rather than Soul.
I find it rather annoying that those who decide on what to reissue seem to be scraping the barrel instead of concentrating on something more important
