Lioness: Hidden Treasures Tracklist:
I had never heard Amy do any of these tracks. Ending with Leon Russell's "A Song For You", makes this posthumous compilation a revelation to me. Her unique interpretation of the diverse material delivers a punch that for me was a TKO. I know it's a cliché, but My Lord what a talent, and what a loss.
Listening to her sing, breaks my heart in a million pieces...she had the voice that comes along once in a lifetime....Such beauty and soul ....I can barefly listen to it. Amy, why did you have to leave us so young? You could have been the most famous singer of your generation and for generations to come.
This is a wonderful compilation of some of Amy’s songs you might otherwise miss. She grooves into her jazz roots with so much soul, you can tell she’s in her element. This is Amy at her best. This album will become one of my favorites and her duet with Tony Bennett is sublime. Buy it!!!
If you’re a fan buy it, if not don’t. It warms the heart to hear her sing and at the same time empties the soul. So much talent and she gave us and herself so little time to share it all. #TheNYking
