Jackie Lee review

Gonzo Multimedia recently released a new compilation for 1960's Irish pop singer Jackie Lee. 

The new 18-song released is named after her most famous single "White Horses" and features an unreleased song, "The Busker" from the album "Calendar," which was also never released. The new compilation begins with the classic sounds of "White Horses" as Jackie had an innocence to her vocals. The gracefulness of her voice is heard on the gentle flow of "I Can Sing A Rainbow" and "I Think I Like You." 

She delivers her version of "Who's Afraid Of The Big Bad Wolf?" and lets her vocals soar during "I Cry Alone," before the compilation closes with the addictive pop of "The Locomotion" and the well-known country/pop gem "The End Of The World," which fits Lee's vocal range perfectly. She cut her career short when she retired from music in 1972, citing vocal complications and throat trouble. To find out more about Jackie Lee's new compilation "White Horses," please visit

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.
