End of a Rainbow - A Pye Anthology - Jackie Lee

End of a Rainbow - A Pye Anthology
In common with many other female singers from the 1960s, Jackie Lee recordings are now collected by fans of '60s girls and Northern Soul who are knowledgeable enough to look beyond the world famous White Horses. Although Jackie had little commercial success - just two hits in Britain - this is a poor indication of her stature in the British music business, particularly during the 1960s.
Having lived and breathed music from her childhood in Ireland to her early retirement in 1973, Jackie made many marvelous recordings over a twenty-year career, with her name cropping up in some unlikely places: Cliff Richard! Jimi Hendrix! Fyffita the Banana! And you will certainly have heard Jackie in session on two British chart-toppers: Tom Jones' Green Green Grass Of Home, and Englebert Humperdinck's Release Me. As well as frequently working at EMI's Abbey Road studios, the voice of Jackie Lee was also heard in many cinema and TV commercials including an award-winning campaign for Fablon with John Barry, BOAC, Lilt ("typically tropical taste…") and the famous Martini ("the right one…").
Pye would keep Jackie gainfully employed until she called time on her career and her Pye debut was an uptempo Alan Moorhouse gem - Love Is A Gamble, and was followed by Everybody Needs A Little Loving, which originally featured in a TV commercial for Campbell's Soups! Following numerous fine recordings, Jackie's return to the charts would be with another children's TV favourite. Rupert - the theme of course to ATV's animated series The Adventures of Rupert the Bear, and like White Horses, it spent several weeks in the UK Top 10.
Throughout her career, Jackie was fortunate to work with some very fine arrangers, musicians and composers, but she still seemed to be under-valued and was not really given the opportunities she deserved. Many fans consider her Pye repertoire to be amongst her finest work and this comprehensive collection of her Pye recordings (1969-1973) features many well known favourites, including the previously unissued Stereo versions of 'One More Mountain' and and 'What will I Do' and also 'Beautiful City' from the music Godspell which likewise is previously unissued. Thhe whole package is enhanced with some highly- informative and entertaining notes and a booklet positively bursting with label repro's and memorabilia…
