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.
Reviews For The Complete Singles As & Bs 1952-62 (2CD)
Vintage Rock (Issue 43) - John Howard
“You may know them best for the million selling Let The Good Times Roll, but that anthem is only part of their story. They started as early as 1950 and by 1952 were placing recordings on the sepia charts, well in advance of most of the recognised pioneers of rock'n'roll. And rock'n'roll they were, and if you don't believe me, check out the unbeatable 1954 cut Keep On. This is a double CD covering the decade from 1952, with a generous 62 tracks covering their time recording for Aladdin, Imperial, Warwick and other imprints and not a duff one amongst them” *****
Now Dig This Issue 436 – Pete Bowen
“This is all pretty good pop, but what makes it worth your attention is the wonderful, wonderful band - the aggregation of geniuses who peopled Cosimo Matassa's studio in New Orleans, and who created so much amazing rocking art, behind so many rock'n'roll masterpieces. There are some masterpieces here too! If you can get over Shirley's voice, and you may not be able to, there is some superb New Orleans rocking R&B pop here, and that's fine by me.”
Blues & Rhythm Issue 341 – Keith Scoffham
“This 62-track compilation with generous playing time is a good place to start and mention must be made straight away about the Paul Watts 15-page write up accompanying this release. A terrific read that tells us all we need to know about the couple and recordings. An enjoyable release that deserves our attention and is highly recommended.”
