A Mostly Mirthful Blog of Music and Miscellany
I thought I was the only one who would remember this day, I made a little something for her on my blog too =) I love Lee!!
Without knowing that it was the centenary of her birth, I found myself playing all my Lee Wiley recordings last week and the week before that. And marveling at them all over again...Just got hold of Touch of the Blues and was astonished at how brilliant she sounded on that album, which is superior to West of the Moon (over-recorded, echo chamber engineering, not Lee's fault for one moment, but rather RCA's) Introduced Lee Wiley to my mother last year~for some odd reason Lee's voice had eluded her all these 86 years. She saw the point of Lee instantly, to her lasting credit!
