Brenda Lee: Sings Country - Ultimate Country Collection (2-CD)

(Hump Head) 50 tracks - This is Brenda's ultimate collection of her Country Music recordings.
-
Once known as 'Little Miss Dynamite,' (she is under five feet), Brenda Lee was the world's most popular female singer from 1960-65. Something of a child prodigy, she burst upon the pop world as a fifteen-year-old with the million-selling Sweet Nuthin's in 1959. For the next six years she hardly put a foot wrong as she dominated the charts with a mix of teen angst ballads and uptempo rockers such as I'm Sorry, All Alone Am I, Dum Dum, Fool No.1, Break It To Me Gently and the perennial Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree. Raised on country music, almost all of her pop hits were recorded in Nashville, with the same session players that were working on then current country hits by Patsy Cline, Jim Reeves, Eddy Arnold and Marty Robbins.

Following several minor hits in the States, Brenda hit the top in 1960 with I'm Sorry, one of the best pop songs from rather an indifferent era. The lyrics had everything a good teenage song should, and it really captured the times. Believing rock'n'roll to be a fad, but sensing they had a voice with long-term potential, Decca Records executives pushed Brenda toward supper-club shows and ballads such as I Want to Be Wanted, Emotions and Fool # 1 once she hit her mid-to-late teens. Such career moves may have cut into her hit-making days as a rock'n'roller, but they did give Brenda a broad foundation from which to build a lengthy career.

Now an elder statesperson of the Nashville pop-country crossovers of the 1960s, Brenda Lee remains a highly regarded and sophisticated international star. She is a member of the Rock and Roll, Country Music and Rockabilly Halls of Fame. She is also a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. She continues to tour worldwide, with a large and loyal following in Japan, Germany, the UK and Australia. In recent years she has served on various CMA boards and committees and been heavily involved in charitable organisations. As you listen to this selection of recordings, many appearing on CD for the first time, you can tell that despite all of her pop and rock'n'roll history, Brenda has always been first and foremost a bona fide country singer. (Alan Cackett)

Brenda Lee

Born on 11. 12. 1944 in Lithonia - Georgia (USA) as Brenda Mae Tarpley. Brenda Lee took part in singing competitions at the age of six. In 1956 she appeared in the opening act of Red Foley. In the same year - Brenda was just 11 - her first recordings were made in Nashville. And already in 1957 she was on the US charts with her third single, "One Step At A Time'.

By 1970, another 48 hits followed, including the number one hits'I'm Sorry' and'I Want To Be Wanted': Brenda (1.43 meters) big! Lee made his first guest appearance in Europe in 1959 - with Gilbert Becaud at the Paris Olympia. Two years later, it also sounded in German. Five (of six) of these singles were sung in Nashville to pre-produced tapes that James Last had made. The single'In my dreams' -'Darling, what's wrong with you' was produced in Hamburg's Polydor Studios (producer: Bert Kaempfert). Lee entered the German hit parade with'Kansas-City' (1964),'Goodbye is beautiful' and'I always want to wait for you' (all 1964).

During the 70s she concentrated on country material. In 1988 Brenda Lee made a record comeback when she could be heard in good form on the CD "Shadowland' by k. d. lang. Little Miss Dynamite' appeared in London in 1993 as part of several revival performances (including Johnny Tillotson and Chris Montez). Two years later, Lee sang with Willy DeVille on his CD'Loup Garou' the intensely enchanting duet'You'll Never Know'. She had a film gastro role in 1980 in the US production "Smokey And The Bandit Ride Again' ('The crafty rascal is back on the road').

Gute Zusammenstellung mir bisher unbekannter Titel

Brenda Lee gehört für mich (neben Wanda Jackson und Connie Francis) zu den seit meiner Jugend goutierten großen US-Sängerinnen. Diese beiden CDs haben nun auch mir ein erstaunliches weiteres Repertoire der "Little Miss Dynamite" erschlossen, jenseits der bekannten früheren Titel aus den 50ern.
