...BECAUSE SOME OF US THINK THAT THIS STUFF IS IMPORTANT
What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.

JACKIE LEE

http://www.babysue.com/2017-Sept-LMNOP-Reviews.html#anchor80656

Jackie Lee - White Horses (CD, Gonzo Multimedia, Pop)
We've heard and appreciated various reissues from Great Britain's Gonzo Multimedia label over the years. This one's a bit different. Listeners who are fans of 1960s music will really appreciate this one. Jackie Lee's music immediately recalls a time when hit songs were often great, rather than always dismal and drab (which is the case in 2017, of course). The album is built around the well-known single "White Horses." The cover is great...it features Jackie standing beside a large white horse wearing a white turtleneck sweater. The title song, as well as the remaining tracks, have held up exceedingly well over the years. Various solo recordings are featured as well as a track recorded with Christopher Gunning ("The Busker") and several by Jackie Lee and the Raindrops. If you dig the sound of artists like Petula Clark and Jackie DeShannon, you're almost certain to fall in love with this collection. Timeless music that should appeal to a wide range of listeners.
