Shirley and Lee were a teenage duo who had a string of R&B and pop hits during the 50s and early 60s. Known as “The Sweethearts Of The Blues”, Shirley Goodman and Leonard Lee were both born in 1936, and a 1950 demo made by Shirley made its way to Eddie Messner of Aladdin Records. He teamed her with Lee to record as a duo under the name of Shirley and Lee - their debut single I'm Gone was an No.2 R&B hit in 1952. This comprehensive 62-track set comprises the A & B sides of all their releases as a duo, plus their solo singles as Shirley Gee and Leonard Lee, on the Aladdin, Lamp, Warwick, 7 Arts and Imperial labels during this era.
