The Lennon Sisters' Favorites album

Here we have another lp available for download: The Lennon Sisters' Favorites. This album was released in 1962.

As you can see from the delightful cover, this was recorded during the time that Dee Dee "retired" from the group, after getting married in 1960. To me Peggy, Kathy and Janet, as a trio, sounded not that different from when they were a quartet. On some songs they do have a deeper tone, but honestly I don't hear a huge difference.

The opening number, The Green Leaves Of Summer, has a sexy, samba style to it. Other standouts are My Favorite Things and Kisses Sweeter Than Wine. The absolute highlight for me though is Bei Mir Bist Du Schoen. I love the vampy piano and swaggering beat.

Download and enjoy!

I can't thank you enough for sharing the tracks on this album - really. I had to take a pause from poring over your incredible LS posts to listen to all twelve tracks again, and again, and again...it's become a new favorite LP (and aren't the girls gorgeous on the cover?)! Thank you so much for the share!

Now once I stop listening to 'Green Leaves of Summer' on repeat, I'll be back to rave some more. :)
