5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful & Polish Voice ~ Impressive Set of Music. February 28, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album reflects great individual style and polish.
That's always been the case with Brenda Lee's music,
and this 1991 release of contemporary country music is no different.
Her voice remains strong ~ with versatile capability's!

Two 45 singles were released form this C.D.
1. "A little unfair" b/w "Some of these days"
2. "Your one and only" b/w "You better do better".
Neither release made it into the top 100.
That fact seems to be a lack of promotion, there's nothing lacking here in quality.

Track listing:
1. "Once love makes a fool of you"
2. "Love is fair"
3. "Against my will"
4. "Lonely too long"
5. "Some of these days"
6. "You better do better"
7. "When he leaves you"
8. "A little unfair"
9. "Standing tall"
10. "Your one and only"

Brenda's voice is dynamic, powerful and polished here through-out the album,
and her delivery of "Lonely to long" is superb!
This C.D. is worth buying for the soul she puts in that one song alone.

This excellent collection includes the classic, "Some of these days",
another outstanding ballad, with Brenda's delivery being the best I've ever heard.
This strong set of songs is for anyone who loves good music.

Footnote: These comments are only for the C.D. with Brenda all in white, sitting on a porch.
With Amazon bunching items together these comments have landed other places also.
Album was produced in 1991 by Warner Brothers.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1991 album shows Brenda as good as ever April 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album was largely ignored because, as far as most people were concerned, Brenda belonged to a bygone age. Certainly, she had huge success as a pop singer in the sixties and had some success as a country singer in the seventies, but here Brenda showed that she could record great country music in the nineties. Backing vocalists include Dennis Locorriere (of Dr Hook) and the Forester sisters.
Brenda recorded songs by some of the best songwriters around including Beth Neilsen Chapman, Jesse Winchester and Karen Staley. The set opens with three excellent ballads - Once love makes a fool of you, Love and Against my will. The tempo picks up a little for Lonely too long - this title has been used for several songs and is not the same as the one on Trouble with the truth (Patty Loveless). Some of these days is a fine mid-tempo song.
You better do better is a great up-tempo song, previously recorded by Baillie and the boys for their album, Lights of home. In an earlier era, Brenda might have rocked really hard on this song but they way she does it here suits me just fine. Next comes another outstanding ballad, When he leaves you, that Shania Twain covered for her untitled major label debut album. A little unfair was originally recorded by Lefty Frizzell - Willie Nelson later covered it for his tribute album to Lefty. Billie Jo Spears first recorded Standing tall - a song later revived by Lorrie Morgan. The set closes with Your one and only, which Barbara Mandrell included on her last original album (It works for me).
Brenda sounds mellower than in her most successful years, but just as brilliant. If you like her music primarily for her rousing rock'n'roll songs like Let's jump the broomstick, you may be best to avoid this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars A VOICE LIKE NO OTHER July 3, 2014
Format:Audio CD
A very pleasant recording from Brenda Lee touching on her Country And Western roots. She recorded many vinyl releases of Country Music that sadly have never been released on CD. Hopefully this will change in the near future because Brenda Lee is deserving of her entire C&W catalog being released on cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection from her later years.... February 19, 2014
Format:MP3 Music
I'll make this very short. This is a wonderful record. I owned it originally on vinyl and now have it on CD. Her voice is as great as it always was and perhaps better. For Brenda Lee fans the CD is worth buying just for the track "Standing Tall" . It is simply one of the greatest things she ever recorded but there isn't a bad song on here. If you love Brenda Lee this is a must own.
