The voice we thought we knew all too well
I must confess that I had a crush on Lesley Gore when I was growing up. I remember thinking if she could just wait a few years and not get older, I might catch up to her! But age she did and very well. Lesley Gore died in February, 2015. But this album is a great gift to those who loved her voice. It is not filled with parties and whose turn it is to cry. It is a collection of grown up songs that show her in a wonderful new light. No complex arrangements, only an honest straight from the heart often melancholy delivery from a voice that has not diminished over the years. Gore left us all too early but this helps us remember a very class act both then and now.
