THE NEW Lee Andrews COLLECTION, VINTAGE, [A PASS-TIME PRODUCTION, 04]LEE CO-PRODUCED THIS CD WITH MR.WELDON Mc DOUGAL III AND RE-MASTERED IT AT MASTERWORK IN PHILADELPHIA.WITH IT'S TWENTY-ONE TRACKS THIS 'LIMTED EDITION' CD COVERS LEE'S RECORDINGS FROM 1957 THROUGH TO THE FOUR PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED TRACKS FROM 1982. Lee Andrews,ROY AND WENDELL CALHOUN,BUTCH CURRY,AND TED WEEMS BEGAN SINGING AS A GOSPEL GROUP BEFORE THEY UNITED AS 'THE DREAMERS'. THEY WERE NEIGHBORHOOD FRIENDS FROM SOUTHWEST PHILADELPHILA NEAR 49 TH AND WOODLAND AVE.THEY ALL ATTENDED JOHN BARTRAM HIGH SCHOOL. THEIR WONDERFUL HARMONY AND EXTRORDINARY TALENT WOULD LED TO AN AUDITON WITH WHAT-AM RADIO DJ KAE WILLIAMS AND ON TO RAINBOW RECORDS. THE WIFE OF THE OWNER OF RAINBOW RECORDS DISCOVERED A PLASTIC HEART ON HER DESK,AND ACCIDENTLY FOUND THE NAME THAT BECAME THEIR SIGNATURE. THUS, THE BEGINNING OF Lee Andrews AND THE HEARTS. AFTER TWO SINGLES ON PARKWAY IN '63' AND ONE ON V.I.P. RECORDS IN '65' YOU COULD ALREADY HEAR FLEDGING SOUL SOUNDS.THE FINAL FOUR SONGS 'PERSONALLY' 'IF YOU COULD SEE ME NOW' 'IF I HAD THE CHANCE' 'AND BOOK OF LOVE' WERE CUT IN NEW YORK IN 1982. THE VINTAGE COLLECTIONS STARTS WITH A SONG THE GROUP IS BEST KNOWN FOR,'LONG LONELY NIGHTS',WHICH THEY FIRST RECORDED FOR MAINLINE/CHESS RECORDS. THIS RECORDING WOULD HIT THE CHARTS AT #11R&B AND #45-POP LIST IN 1957. THE GROUP SPECIALIZED IN THE TENDER DOOWOP BALLADS AND THEIR FOLLOW-UP IN 1957. 'TEARDROPS' WAS AN EVEN BIGGER HIT. HITTING THE CHARTS AT #4R&B AND 20-POP. BOTH OF THOSE SONGS AS WELL AS 'TRY THE IMPOSSIBLE'#33-POP AND 'WHY DO I '.WERE ORGINALLY CUT FOR GOTHAM BUT WAS LEFT IN THE CAN IN 1958. LEE RECORDED 'I WONDER' A SOLO SINGLE IN 1959 FOR CASINO RECORDS. LEE ALSO RECORDED ' I MISS YOU' 'A NIGHT LIKE TONIGHT' AND 'P.S. I LOVE YOU' FROM 1960-61 WITH THE NEON'S. LEE LATER RE-RECORDED ' MY LONELY ROOM' WITH THE HEARTS ON GOWEN RECORDS IN 1962 WELDON ARTHUR MC DOUGAL III AND Lee Andrews DECIDED TO DO A SUMMARY OF LEE'S LIFE IN MUSIC. THESE ARE SOME OF THE SONGS THAT ARE FONDLY REMEMBERED FOR THEIR SMOOTH SOULFUL AND MELODIOUS HARMONY. THIS CD WAS DIGITALLY REMASTERED, E-N-J-O-Y!!!
