CD Reviews

A treasure chest of beautifully crafted gems....
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A Brenda Lee extravaganza covering her enormously popular years between 1956 - 1962, This Bear Family boxed set of 4 cds includes a large hard-bound book jam-packed with photos and biographical data. For starters, the audio quality and remastering are superb. I was startled at how the music leaped out into the room, being exceptionally dynamic and lively. Brenda's voice has a palpable presence. Also, you can take pleasure in hearing the fine detail and nuances of the instrumentation. Speaking of instrumentation, Owen Bradley, the Nashville producer who produced such stars as Patsy Cline, Conway Twitty, and Loretta Lynn, matched Brenda Lee early on with outstanding studio pros like Hank Garland, Floyd Cramer, Boots Randolf,Grady Martin, the Jordanaires and Anita Kerr singers. Legends in themselves, these musicians brought a level of professionalism to Brenda's music second to none. Even excluding Brenda's extraordinary contribution, it is pure pleasure listening to her supporting cast. And finally, there is Brenda. Song after song, interpretation after interpretation, we discover the allure and timelessness of her music. Her talent is a shining star that shines brightly in each of the 122 performances included in this set. In a very natural manner, Brenda effortlessly emotes an energy and feeling that ranges all the way from heartbreak to fiery passion. When we look back and think of country artists like Hank Williams, Jim Reeves, and Patsy Cline as singing the "country blues", Brenda Lee established a style that can only be referred to as "country soul". What is indeed trully remarkable about this body of work is that she reached such a height of success and professionalism between the tender ages of 12 and 16. Equally impressive, upon listening to her repertoire, was that there was no tapering off of her talent or presentation - she only gets better! For those who want to look back through the lens of time and discover a treasure of beautifully crafted gems, I recommend this collection of vintage Brenda Lee. It reminds us that all true art is timeless and eternal."

"A very nice and swinging CD-Box of Brenda lee. I hope that a second CD-box of the 60/70's and a third box of the 70/80's and a fourth CD-Box of the 80/90's will berelease VERY SOON. Please BEAR FAM.RECORDS, you proved to know what is good music......................."
Truly is DYNAMITE!

"I think I fell in love with Brenda when I heard her first single in 1957. What a big powerful voice in such a little girl. I've waited for a good Brenda Box Set since CDs first came out. The double MCA anthology was OK but only left me wanting much, much more Brenda. Leave it to Bear Family to do it right. The sound quality is pristine and this box set showcases Brenda's enormous talent during her early years. Every song is great on this set and I've been anxiously awaiting the next release by Bear Family for this enormous talent. If you're a Brenda Lee fan, you absolutely have to have this box set!"
