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

(Hump Head) 50 tracks - This is Brenda's ultimate collection of her Country Music recordings.

In the first volume of BRENDA LEE SINGS COUNTRY, we featured all of those hit singles plus many of the excellent B-sides, most appearing on CD for the first.
In this second volume we have chosen the best tracks from the nine albums that Brenda recorded during that time. Alongside the hit singles, these original vinyl LPs also featured Brenda's distinctive renditions of such then current hits by Johnny Nash (I Can See Clearly Now), Jean Shepard (Slippin' Away), Merle Haggard (Everybody's Had The Blues) and Barry White (You're The First, the Last, My Everything).

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.

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.
