Editorial Reviews

CD DigiPac with 52-page booklet. 36 tracks with a playing time of 87 minutes. The Queen of Rock 'n' Roll on an expertly chosen blend of big hits and lesser-known, blues-edged cuts all designed to appeal to listeners who like to rock. Sweet Nothin's is here of course along with all-time favourites like Let's Jump The Broomstick, Dum Dum, Here Comes That Feeling and the seasonal mega-hit, Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree. Also includes Is It True, the Mickie Most-produced UK hit which features Led Zeppelin's guitarist, Jimmy Page. Time Magazine described her voice as 'Part whiskey, part black and all woman'. John Lennon put it simply: 'The greatest voice of the rock 'n' roll era'.

Unlike most child stars, there was nothing cloying or distasteful about Brenda Lee. She had tons of credibility from the very beginning, kick-starting her long career with Bigelow 6-200 recorded in mid-1956 when she was only eleven years old. This comprehensive collection includes that rockabilly gem and the cream of her up-tempo Decca recordings, showcasing the grittiest voice of the pre-Beatles era on a leather-lunged raft of scorching rockers like Sweet Nothin's, Dynamite and Let's Jump The Broomstick. This then, is the story of Brenda Lee, rock 'n' roller in excelsis. And because it's on Bear Family, it comes with a beautiful, picture-filled booklet and a total of 36 tracks which dwarfs any other compilation on the market.

Brenda Lee's status as a legend was solidified when she became one of a very unique quartet of vocalists who can currently lay claim to being the only ones to have been inducted into the performing artist categories of both the Country Music (1997) and Rock & Roll (2002) Halls Of Fame - the others being Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and The Everly Brothers. Pretty heady company that should be increased to six with Jerry Lee Lewis (1986) and Carl Perkins (1987) who, unbelievably, have yet to be similarly honored by the Country Hall!

Born in Atlanta, Georgia on December 11, 1944, Brenda was just 11 when discovered by Red Foley in 1955, and soon she was a regular on the Ozark Jubilee. In 1956 she cut the Hank Williams' hit Jambalaya (On The Bayou) b/w Bigelow 6-200 on Decca 9-30050, a regional Country favorite, and the following year had her first national hit when One Step At A Time rose to # 15 Country and # 43 Billboard Pop Top 100 in March- April on Decca 30198 b/w Fairyland, backed by the Jack Pleis orchestra (her last Country hit for 14 years).

All but Fairyland are in this 36-track entry in Bear Family's vast "Rocks" series which has excellent sound reproduction (as is usual with their products) and a 52-page insert full of vintage photos/reproductions and informative and interesting liner notes by Todd Everett. There is no attempt, however, to present the sides in any chronological order. It includes some of her best nationally-charting hit singles, non-charting B-sides, several LP cuts, three that made their first appearance on disc in 1974 (tracks 6, 18 and 29 from the Germany-issued Coral LP COPS-7292 "The Legends Of Rock, vol. 2" and one (track 35) that didn't appear until 2009 in the Ace of London CD "Queen Of Rock `N' Roll.

Still not "complete":

As Brenda Lee's first ten LPs are available in five "Twofers," and have excellent sound, this could easily have omitted the LP tracks, and replaced them with singles tracks otherwise not available.

And this is not correct:

"total of 36 tracks which dwarfs any other compilation on the market."

The 1991 2-CD "Anthology" has 40 tracks.

So many of these compilations (many of them being bootlegs) repeat the same tracks over and over again. Hopefully the forthcoming "Complete US & UK Singles As and Bs 1956-1962" will actually be complete to that extent.
