Editorial Reviews

A country-pop songwriter like no other, Dickey saw his songs chart for everyone from George Jones to Air Supply. No other Dickey Lee CD is currently available; these re-records are sonically superior to the originals: his hits: She Thinks I Still Care; Patches; I Saw Linda Yesterday; Laurie (Strange Things Happen); Never Ending Song of Love; Rocky; 9,999,999 Tears; Angels, Roses and Rain , and more!

It's hard to imagine that in 2011, a time in which everything ever recorded seems to be available in digital form, there are still hit recordings yet to be reissued. But such is the case for singer/songwriter Dickey Lee, whose hit singles on the pop and country charts have yet to be reissued in proper form. You can find his biggest pop hit, "Patches," if you look hard enough (try here), but his chart-topping country hit "Rocky" (along with twenty-six other rarities) can only be found on the provenance-free Greatest Hits Collection. Given his success as both a recording artist (who began his career recording for no less than Sun) and songwriter, one can only assume his recordings are tied up in a maze of lost contracts and competing intellectual property claims.

Varese's collection doesn't solve the problem of Lee's original recordings, as these tracks are re-recordings made within the past decade. The arrangements are kept simple, but the clean production and modern keyboards and drums distract from the period songwriting style. Lee's voice retains the boyishness of his younger years, and without the original singles easily available, this is at least a good reminder of what's in the vault. "Patches" retains the morose triple-shot of classism, prejudice and teen tragedy, and the follow-up "Laurie (Strange Things Happen)," is still one of the spookier stories to crack the Top 40. Lee was so adept at singing bitter-sweet songs that he topped the country chart with Jay Stevens' "Rocky" the same year Austin Roberts took it up the pop chart.

I agree that the recording values of these songs are not true to the tone of Dickie Lee, but they are better than doing without. He was an incredible artist, and I was blessed to play golf with him in a Benefit Tournament in Chattanooga Tn back in the 80's. He dedicated Rocky to my wife that night at the concert hosted by Tom T. Hall and she heard about it for years. I love all his songs, but Angels Roses and Rain will always be my favorite. There is so much feeling in all his songs, he got the message across without all the tricked up gimicks most of the music produced during his recording life seemed to need. I miss the hit not present, but I'm grateful for the opportunity to hear my favorites again.

this CD has a few Dickey Lee hits on it, one hit that is not on any Dickey Lee CD, Red Green Yellow And Blue, may well be tied up in litigation, or owned by a recording liquidation who is something else in an attempt to bury the song. I am not saying whether this song is available to listen to, or not, as some outfits will, then block that venue.

I love the song Rocky, I would listen to this song over and over on my grandmothers stereo. I was 10 years old and stayed all night with her on Friday nites. I had the 45 and I played over and over. So glad I found this CD. Now I just hit repeat on my cd player and listen and sing along to Rocky all day long. thank you

I have his biggest rock hits on other recordings, but 9,999,999 tears to go is a great song that I only had the single of. The songs have been re-recorded which I usually don't like. But I'm a big enough Dickey Lee fan to not let it bother me at all. great album
for country and rock fans.
