Tommie Lee

Tommie - or Tommy - Lee worked on the West Coast cutting a couple of 45s in the early 70s. ListenThat’s The Way I Want To Live My Life is a quality ballad from the reliable Phillip Mitchell, sung with considerable skill and emotional strength by Mr Lee. I really like those falsetto bursts and the full, lush orchestral setting. Sadly neither side of the Tri-Spade release is anything like up to this standard.




I know how you feel / Wake up young people ~ TRI-SPADE 001 (early 70s)
ListenThat’s the way I want to live my life / Delta queen ~ CAPITOL 3594 (1973)

Note ~ Is the Tommie Lee, who cut an attractive and typically relaxed New Orleans song “Won’t You Make Up Your Mind” for Tribe in the 60s, the same artist?
