Lee is best known today as half of the Jimmy & Johnny duo of the 1950s. In their time, they blazed a trail across the South from the stage of the legendary Louisiana Hayride, racking up an impressive amount of major label recordings. Yet, Lee's own solo recordings from that era are less well known, and most have never been reissued. With this collection, Bear Family has corrected this oversight, bringing together for the first time all 16 of his recordings from 1951-52. As a bonus, a 1958 single, as well as his rare 1962 recordings are included.
