Brenda Lee, Coming On Strong, Decca DL-4825, 1966

For as big as she was from 1960-62, after The Beatles hit, Brenda Lee’s career was on the wane.  She wasn’t alone, but she was perhaps the best selling artist in the world.  She needed a hit by 1966, and got one in an enduring underground classic.

Unfortunately, the rest of the album is just meh.  They used what seems to be a horribly outdated picture on the front and the back is nothing more than a bland description of the songs here and ads for her other albums that weren’t selling.  The other songs are just covers of hits of the day that add nothing to the rocking title track.

When I say this is an underground hit, it comes from being mentioned in Golden Earring’s Radar Love.  That cool rock song spurred interest in the 8 year old song, especially in the UK.  So, I’ll listen to the one song I love here, but thats about it.

Today’s Summary:
Cost: $2, $556 Remaining
