This is one the greatest collections of Lenny Dee that I have heard. His original style with just an organ and percussionist has long been considered Lenny's best recordings. Here is a master artist of the organ on perfectly engineered CDs. Only the last chord of "Fan Tango" was cut off to my dismay. Otherwise, Lenny's foot tapping style and sensitive playing on the smooth numbers have been excellently displayed.

Following the advent of the genre known as Rock `N' Roll in the mid-1950s, a sub-genre soon appeared, that of the R&R Instrumental. Many historians will point to Bill Doggett's 1956 smash Honky Tonk Parts 1 & 2 as the catalyst, and for the next 15 years the R&R Instrumental would be a mainstay on the charts led by the likes of Johnny & The Hurricans, The Champs, Sil Austin, Bill Haley & His Comets (he had several pure instrumental hits including one by his band calling themselves The Kingsmen), Bill Justis, Ernie Freeman, Noble "Thin Man" Watts, Doc Bagby, Duane Eddy & The Rebels, The Royaltones, Boots Brown, Cozy Cole, The Gone All Stars, The Tune Rockers, The Ventures, Lee Allen & His Band, The Cyclones, Dave "Baby" Cortez, Santo & Johnny, Sandy Nelson, The Virtues, Preston Epps, The Rock-A-Teens, Link Wray & The Wraymen, The Wailers, The Fireballs, The Megatrons, The Hot Toddys (Rockin' Rebels), The Rockin' Rs, The Wild-Cats, The Intruders, Pat & The Satellites, The Frantics, The Fendermen, Bil Black's Combo, James Booker, The Viscounts, The Piltdown Men - and on and on.

Great bands all, and some of the most memorable tunes to ever come out of the decades of the 1950s and 1960s. But for my money, the guy who started it all was Lenny Dee, born Leonard DeStoppelaire in Chicago on January 5, 1923. This organist deluxe, discovered by the great C&W artist Red Foley, started the ball rolling with his thumping Hammond Organ rendition of Plantation Boogie on Decca 29380 in early 1955, shooting it to # 19 Pop Top 100 b/w The Birth Of The Blues.

And while that may have been his only charted hit single, thereby relegating him to the One-Hit Wonder Club, his many albums became best-sellers over the years, and here in this fantastic release from Jasmine Music of the U.K. (where else?) you get the best cross-variety of his music you can possibly find, including both sides of that one hit.

I listened to Lenny Dee as I was growing up in the 1950s - very popular records around our house - and later I found copies of many of his LPs in used record stores, flea-markets, and garage sales. This 2 CD collection has many of the best Lenny Dee performances and seems to be the only reissue of his work available. Too bad there is no USA release version! (Take the hint, Rhino Records ;-)

The arrangements are clever, "Pop" and musical without being too far into "Space-Age Bachelor Pad" kitsch territory.

Well friends, this is the first of several Lenny Dee CD's to come...
We're going back to the fifties here, with Plantation Boogie, the million-seller from 1955 as the featured show-stopper. Even if you've never heard of him, this is a great primer on how a Hammond Organ should sound, when played properly. Listen to the superb pedal work on every tune, and the gorgeous harmonies supplied by Lenny's left hand, as he manipulates the drawbars, the keys, and that very cool Solovox to awaken your musical senses. He left us, suddenly, a couple of years ago, but I'm sure he headlines nightly in the next life, because you just can't keep Lenny Dee from doing what he does best....so get this album now, and experience my old friend playing Hammond Organ just for you!

Lenny Dee is the godfather of the Hammond organ. He brought the organ out of the church and onto the stage. His playing is amazing. I wish his later albums were also available, when he used the Hammond Concorde, but finding CDs of Lenny Dee is very difficult. For Hammond organ lovers who are not into the jazz organ scene, this is a great album.
