Pretty Little Angel Eyes - Golden Classic Edition
Genres: Pop, Rock
A great rock and roll bargain!
Luisito Joaquín González | London, United Kingdom | 03/05/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Curtis lee, in my opinion, was one of the most underrated stars of the early sixties. 'Pretty little angel eyes' is a classic doo-wop masterpiece and so - of course - is 'Under the moon of love'. But other surprisingly good recordings on this CD include: 'Just another fool', 'Mr. Mistaker', 'Beverley Jean' and the classic ballad 'Gee I wish you were here'. It seems strange when hearing that not many of these tunes burnt up the charts. But I suppose being released at a time when competition was so great from artists such as Ral Donner, Gene Pitney, Chrisie Tuohy and the king himself, it must've been hard for someone to make a break from a relatively small label such as Dunes, which also housed Ray Peterson. But if you're looking for some great oldies that I'm sure you haven't already heard, then give this a try. Although the terrible 'Wobble' and the blatantly Dion inspired 'Lonely Weekends' may not hold up the ante, there are still some remarkable records on this decent CD, Enjoy"
ROCK AND ROLL HEAVEN

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This heavenly disc begins with the title song, the one most of us have heard. The big surprise comes next. The following sixteen songs are all represenative of early rock and roll and doo wop. Curtis Lee is extemely talented and this collection showcases his natural abilities very well. I would say that Curtis Lee is one of the most underrated artists of the rock and roll era. After listening to this disc I only wish I could See Curtis Lee in concert."
A Fitting Tribute to A Great Pop Artist

"Curtis Lee will always be remembered for "P-L-A-E," but many of us are old enough to recall the not-so-popular works presented in this collection. It is a must for any fan of the early 60's music and those lost days of "Camelot." Lee made many recordings most listeners have never heard before, and this CD brings home this artist's often forgotten vocal talents."
