Lena Horne Soars, The Lion Roars

with one comment

As previously mentioned, Hip-O Select had yet another release up their sleeve: Lena Horne Sings: The M-G-M Singles Collection. It’s a set of 16 early Lena Horne classics cut for M-G-M Records in the ’40s and ’50s and largely unavailable on CD until now. There’s a heap of standards, including “‘Deed I Do,” “Where or When,” “I’ve Got the World on a String” and “The Lady is a Tramp,” plus liner notes from Horne biographer James Gavin.

Pre-order it here and hit the jump for some specs (culled together with much effort, as the Internet is not kind to those looking for M-G-M discographical info for Ms. Horne).
