Our DVD release sees the sensational Brenda Lee performing such favourites as ‘Coming On Strong’ and ‘All Alone Am I’ in a memorable 80s concert that clearly shows her at the very top of her professional career. The diminutive Brenda exploded onto the music scene at the tender age of six winning a three-year contract to appear on TV programme Ozark Jubilee. It was from this platform in 1950 that Brenda Mae Tarpley from Lithonia, Georgia began her journey to worldwide stardom. Nicknamed ‘Little Miss Dynamite’, coined from her single ‘Dynamite’, the young Brenda Lee was on course to take the world by storm. Her first single ‘Jambalaya’ in 1956 heralded a string of hits including the million seller ‘I’m Sorry’ in 1960 topping the charts for an incredible six months and winning a gold disc in the process. In ’64 she recorded two major releases in the UK with hit supremo Mickey Most and went on in November of the same year to appear before the Queen in a Royal Command Performance, a feat she would never have dreamt possible. Still performing today to packed audiences throughout the world this married mother of two was and still is as explosive on stage as her nickname implies.

A superb DVD with the self-effacing Willie Nelson performing an inspired selection of the best known songs of his long and continuing career. Willie was born in Abbott, Texas in 1933 into a desperately poor family,his parents abandoned him at a very early age and he was left with his grandparents, which as fate would have it was where Willie strummed his first guitar. From this faltering start the road ahead was never going to be a smooth one, but his desire to make music overrode any everyday issues such as earning enough to pay the bills or feed his family. It was this dogged dedication to his music that in 1960 spurred him to drive to Nashville armed with his guitar, a clutch of overdue bills and a 19 year old Buick that was about to push its last piston. Travelling on guts and determination he arrived at his destination and the world began to benefit from his song-writing wizardry with hits recorded by Patsy Kline, Faron Young and Ray Price. But it was his voice that became his passport to fame; he was ranked 25 in an elite list of the 30 bestselling artists shifting a massive 31million albums worldwide. Not a bad achievement for a guy with a dodgy Buick!
