Little Miss Dynamite It Seems Like She's Been Around Forever.

"This woman came up to me and said, 'Oh, I just loved your show and it's so great seeing you again.' I said, 'Why, thank you.' She said, 'Do you remember where we saw 'too?' I said, 'Well, no.' She said, 'At the premiere of 'Gone with the Wind." Well, I couldn't dispute her. I said, 'Wasn't it a uvmderful movie? Didn't Clark Gable look great? And how terrible that Margaret Mitchell was killed crossing the street!' I dust were right along. Because if you say, 'I wasn't there,' they're gonna say, 'Well, you were, too.' You know, that uas in I939, and I wasn't born until '44."

As the above snippet from a Brenda lee interview with author Manna Nash suggests, folks tend to think that Brenda Lee was a contemporary of Shirley Temple or Judy Garland. That has something to do with the fact that, like those two great Hollywood stars, Brenda Lee began in show business as a child. And it probably has something to do with l3renda's versatility and longevity: during her forty years of recording Brenda Lee has run the gamut of pop music, tackling country, rockabilly, Depression-era !oils standards, Brill Building pop ballads, fifties R&B, even European songs in translation and in several foreign languages, handling all with energy and aplomb. Worldwide, she's sold more than 80 million records.

But Brenda Lee is no ancient Hollywood hoofer. She's a Baby Boom, and a rocker. In I963 she toured Germany with the Beatles (they opened for her). The Fab Four still had a whole revolutionary career ahead of them, but Brenda was already an established star, having spent a decade as a professional entertainer by then and having sold millions of records worldwide. Though she would go on to record many

more great pop and countr:v songs, and continues to perform to this day, she had already made her mark. No wonder she seems to belong to a different generation. Even then she seemed sophisticated and grown-up compared to the scruffy mop-tops. And yet when she toured with the Beatles, she was still a teenager. Yes, she was younger than John, Paul, and George.

The annals of entertainment are fairly littered with the stories of child stars who weren't able to sustain their youthful appeal from Mickey Rooney to Menudo, ad nauseam. Brenda Lee is that rare impressive exception of a child star who didn't wear out her welcome. From the beginning she was much more than a novelty act: "a little bitty girl with a big ale voice," as Brenda describes her youthful self. From her first recordings she sang with the confidence and command of a full-grown adult, and as she matured she was able to infuse nearly everything she recorded with a passion and depth of feeling that belied her tender years. The influence of her early output still lingers, and artists as diverse as Elton John and Stevie Nicks have beers vocal about their debt to her music.

During her first ten years with Decca Records Brenda recorded some 250 masters. This set covers her first, and arguably her most exciting, years with the label, from I956 through I962, when she ranged in age from eleven to seventeen. Brenda Lee's recordings during these years fall more or less into three distinct periods: a brief flirtation with country music in I956, the rockabilly years from I957 through I958, then a pronrninced emphasis on ballads and standards from I959 through I962. That last period marked her greatest success on the pop charts: from the end of I959 to mid-I962, every Brenda Lee single released, nine of them, was a Top Ten hit. And many of those singles' B-sides broke high into the charts as well. During those years, she was the best-selling female as ',opal, mask-.

With the exception of two cuts from one early New York session, all of the classic recordings collected in this boxed set were made in Nashville under the direction of Owen Bradley, the man who recorded Patsy Cline and Loretta Lynn, among many others. In I966, on the occasion of her tenth anniversary with Decca, Bradley pronounced Brenda Lee the "biggest female voice of the past ten years." By way of explanation he added: "I feel that Brenda has done as much as any other artist to build and mold what became known as the Nashville Sound. The more successful she became, the more that known and unknown artists came here to get the same sound. We had a fantastic number of country acts here over the years, but Brenda added sensationalism to the old country drive. She proved that pop could be done in Nashville."

Brenda Lee

They didn’t call pint-sized Brenda Lee ‘Little Miss Dynamite’ for nothing. Her powerhouse pipes were like a lit keg of TNT even before Paul Cohen signed her to Decca at the tender age of 11 (Decca misleadingly billed her as “Little Brenda Lee [9 Years Old]” on her first two singles in 1956). Only four-foot-nine even as an adult, Brenda’s huge, mature-sounding voice belied her diminutive physical stature.

Born Brenda Mae Tarpley in Atlanta on December 11, 1944, she sang around the house at three, won a school talent contest at four, and performed on local TV before she was seven. After a brief stint in Cincinnati, Brenda’s family settled in Augusta, Georgia, where deejay Peanut Faircloth took an interest. He insisted country star Red Foley listen to his little friend when Foley performed in Augusta. Foley was so knocked out that he put 11-year-old Brenda on ‘Junior Jubilee,’ the pubescent counterpart to his ABC-TV show ‘Ozark Jubilee,’ in March of ’56. Befpubescent counterpart to his ABC-TV show ‘Ozark Jubilee,’ in March of ’56. Before long, Brenda was on the adult version. Manager Dub Allbritten decided her stage handle of Little Brenda Tarpley was mundane, so she would be known as Brenda Lee.

Cohen pacted Brenda in May of ’56. Her first Nashville session that July included the rocking Bigelow 6-200 and a rousing reprise of Hank Williams’ Jambalaya (On The Bayou) that Cohen paired as her debut single. Although she usually recorded in Nashville under the direction of Cohen and Owen Bradley, Brenda’s first hit in 1957, the jumping One Step At A Time, was done at New York’s cavernous Pythian Temple under Milt Gabler’s supervision.

Lee cut a raft of great rockers early on in Nashville—Dynamite (the basis for her nickname), Rock The Bop, Ring-A-My-Phone and its incredibly swinging flip Little Jonah (Rock On Your Steel Guitar) (cut May 15, 1958 at Bradley’s studio with Nashville’s A-Team in attendance, it featured Buddy Emmons’ blistering steel work), Let’s Jump The Broomstick, and just in time for 1958 holiday sales, her immortal Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree.

But hits remained in short supply until Ronnie Self wrote Brenda the teasing Sweet Nothin’s. Laced with the insinuating sax of Boots Randolph (a frequent presence on her waxings), it crashed the pop Top Five in 1960, setting the stage for Brenda’s two-sided blockbuster later that year. Jerry Reed penned the upbeat That’s All You Gotta Do, but it was Self’s torch ballad I’m Sorry, sung by Brenda like a jilted woman despite her being only 15, that gave Lee her first pop chart-topper,

“Brenda was a little pro. She was way ahead of her time. At 12, 13 years old, she just reared back and sang like the dickens,” said the late Randolph. “She had a knack about her--I don=t know if she would mimic somebody, or was just letting it all hang out. That little gal could sing, and she hung in there. She liked people like Dinah Washington and Ella Fitzgerald and all of those great singers that came along at that time with the pop singers. It was something else to get in there with a kid that young being able to sing that well.”

Although she had a big seller in 1961 with the cute upbeat item Dum Dum, most of Brenda’s smashes for Decca after I’m Sorry were brokenhearted laments that Bradley gave the full countrypolitan treatment: I Want To Be Wanted (her second #1 pop entry in 1960), Emotions, You Can Depend On Me, Fool #1, Break It To Me Gently, All Alone Am I. Brenda built a huge following around the world and toured the globe regularly, once with the then-unknown Beatles opening for her.

When the pop arena finally lost interest in Lee’s Decca output at the close of the ‘60s (her Too Many Rivers and Coming On Strong just missed the pop Top Ten in 1965 and ’66 respectively), country music fans were quick to embrace the lovable little chanteuse. Brenda scored a slew of C&W hits during the ‘70s and ‘80s.
