Rock & Roll Singer
Rock and Roll Singer is an exciting retrospective of George Lee's work as a young singer/songwriter who discovered the ecstasy of studio recording. The first six tracks are single 45rpm records released between 1975 - 1979. 'Sweet & Brutal' was ahead of it's time in lyrical content - some stations banned it, one shocked program director said he had a '... dramatic experience' when he first heard it. 'Elayne', the single from 1976, was one of the top five requested songs on Texas radio, made a dent in the charts and still rocks with the best of them. The second six songs represent are from Lee's three-piece band years as lead singer and guitarist of GEO. They are HOT! Some captured the raw energy of Live Geo. Listen to 'No Woman' and 'Rock and Roll Singer', not to mention Lee's killer rock anthems, 'Indiana Red' and 'Do You Remember How We Used to Rock and Roll'. Those tracks were featured on the 1982 album, 'Made To Be Played' and they definitely are, virtually recorded live directly onto analog tape. It's a strange mix of pop and garage band blues rock; an ecletic mix of styles, hard rockin' and vastly entertaining. Listen to the lyrics! It's a lot of smokin' energy from the days when rock actually ROCKED, with meaningful words and irresistible melodies! Lee is writer, fine artist, published playwright, actor and comedian in Galveston, Texas. He is a performing songwriter and continues to write and record new material.
