4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Lee, 2 Feb 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pretty Eyes/Guitars A La Lee (MP3 Download)
From her best period (early '60s)here's an excellent double album. I bought Pretty Eyes as an LP way back. Its essentially a ballad album for late night listening, and this is is a great re-mastering, improving on the original sound considerably.

As far as I know Guitars ala Lee was never released as an LP over here, and it has to be one of her very best, with a great mix of sultry and uptempo songs. As always, she knew how to pick a good song, and there are some crackers here - especially the ballad 'My guitar' which is a stunner and shows off her flawless timing. In addition this lady could swing an uptempo number with an ease that no-one else matched. Even with that soft husky voice she always drove the arrangements along - no doubt a skill she learnt from her band singer days.

She inspired the next generation of singers. Today's young 'wanna be's could do a lot worse than learn from someone who really knew her craft.

Buy and enjoy - especially for the revelatory Guitars ala Lee...
