Brenda Lee: The Crying Game (CD)

(1991/MCA) 20 tracks

A new compilation made up of Brenda's great recordings of classic love songs: The Crying Game : Written by Geoff Stephens, a hit originally for Dave Berry - No.5 August 1964; more recently a successful inclu-sion in the film of the same name recorded by Boy George, hitting the charts UK and US.

Can't Help Falling In Love : Recorded by Brenda, 21st June 1967 for her October 1967 album, "Reflections In Blue". The song has been a hit sever-al times, most recently for UB40, who topped the charts in 1993 with the song., as did Elvis in 1962. The Stylistics hit No.4 in 1976 with it, produced by the song's writers. Andy Williams went one position better in 1970. The least successful version was by Lick The Tins, who only managed a No.42 in 1986. September In The Rain : A classic song made famous by the legendary Dinah Washington who hit the UK and US top 40 with it in 1961. A superb Al Dubin / Harry Warren song which Brenda recorded for her "Bye Bye Blues" album on 14th January 1966. When I Fall In Love : A hit twice over for Nat 'King' Cole, who first charted (No.2) in 1957, then thirty years later (No.4) at the same time as Rick Astley's cover version reached No.2! A much-loved standard which Brenda recorded on 9th January 1960 for her "Emotions" album, released April 1961 to tie in with her hit single of the same name.

Will You Love Me Tomorrow : The Gerry Goffin / Carole King pop classic, covered by everyone from Dusty Springfield to Bryan Ferry. The most success-ful version was by The Shirelles, which reached No.1 in America and No.4 in Britain in 1961. Brenda recorded the song for her "Emotions" album 9th January 1961. Close To You : Recorded 21st June 1967 by Brenda for her 1967 album "Reflections In Blue". Fools Rush In : Recorded 8th January 1961 for her "Sincerely" album, released February 1962. Then it was a contemporary hit song, as Brook Benton took it into the American Top 30 in 1960 and in 1963 Rick Nelson went to No.12 in both the US and UK with it. A Johnny Mercer classic. You Always Hurt The One You Love : Recorded 25th October 1961 for Brenda's "Sincerely" album, the song had been a big hit in the UK the same year for Clarence 'Frogman' Henry, reaching No.6 and No.12 in the US. Words : A Bee Gees classic, which gave the band their third UK Top 10 hit album in January 1968. Recorded by Brenda 20th May 1974 for her album "Brenda Lee Now", released the same year. If You Go Away : Jacques Brel / Rod McKuen 'weepie' which has been covered by many artists, such as Scott Walker, Neil Diamond and Dusty Springfield. It became a hit for the first time in 1974 for Terry Jacks, who reached No.8 in the UK. Brenda recorded the song 18th March 1969 for her "Johnny One Time" album released May the same year. Let It Be Me : A 1960 hit for the Everly Brothers, Brenda recorded this lovely version on 26th October 1964 for her "Top Teen Hits" album. Our Day Will Come : A No.1 US hit in 1963 for Ruby and The Romantics, then twelve years later Frankie Valli took the song to No.11. Brenda recorded the song 10th April 1963 for her "Let Me Sing" album released in May the same year. This Girl's In Love With You : This Bacharach-David song, released by Herb Alpert in 1968 and Dionne Warwick a year later, must be one of the most covered songs ever. A hit many times throughout the world, Brenda put it on tape on 17th March 1969 for her "Johnny One Time" album, released in May that year. You Don't Have To Say You Love Me : Dusty Springfield's only No.1 hit, in 1966, Elvis covered the song in 1971 and hit the Top 20. Brenda recorded it on 8th October 1966 for her "Coming On Strong" album. If I Didn't Care : A US hit for Connie Francis in 1959, when she reached No22, then The Platters hit No.30 two years later. David Cassidy covered the song in 1974 and took it to No.9. It was recorded by Brenda on 1st September 1960 for her "This Is Brenda Lee" album released a month later. I'll Be Seeing You : A standard favourite, sung by every major song stylist, Brenda recorded this beautifully evocative song for her "Sincerely" album on 26th October 1961. Lover Come Back To Me : Another all-time evergreen, Brenda recorded this for her 1961 album "All The Way", on 19th May that year.

Softly As I Leave You : An Italian song with English lyrics by publishing legend Hal Shaper, Matt Munro took this into the British Top 10 in 1962, Sinatra hit-ting the US Top 30 two years later. A classic romantic ballad, Brenda added her name to the list of interpreters on 15th January 1966 for her "Bye Bye Blues" album. What Kind Of Fool Am I : This Anthony Newley - Lesley Bricusse show stopper first hit the charts in 1961 when Newley him-self recorded it. A year later, Sammy Davis Jnr took it into the British and American charts and Shirley Bassey completed the trio in 1963 with a UK Top 50 hit. Brenda did it for her 1963 album "All Alone Am I", recording it on 12th December 1962. The End Of The World : Skeeter Davis hit the American Top Three with this great 'weepie' in 1963, enjoying a UK No.18 hit the same year. Twenty seven years later, Sonia equalled Skeeter's UK peak. Recorded by Brenda 10th April 1963 for her "Let Me Sing" album, and a fitting end to this compilation. N.B. All release information i1-Wsed on U.S.A. catalogues unless otherwise stated.

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').
