Brenda Lee - 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 Brenda Lee's 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 Brenda Lee 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 Brenda Lee 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.
