Two LPs of early Jackie DeShannon honky tonk recorded by her mother!

Extensive liner notes by Michael Gray of the Country Music Hall of Fame!

LP is cut by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio

Two honky tonk platters of newly discovered recordings from the legendary singer-songwriter when she was performing country music under her birth name, Sherry Lee Myers. Recorded by her mother directly from the radio!

You probably know the great Jackie DeShannon as the California-based pop singer who in the 1960s, when America seemed to be coming apart at the seams, proclaimed that "What the World Needs Now Is Love" and urged us all to "Put a Little Love in Your Heart." A desperate SOS for a society in distress never sounded so sweet.

But do you recall, a decade earlier, hearing 15-year-old Sharon Lee Myers (on the radio she was "Sherry Lee") singing hardcore country songs by Patsy Cline, George Jones, Webb Pierce, and the like?

You don't? Well, then, you will no doubt be surprised to learn that Sherry Lee and Jackie DeShannon are one and the same. Yes, Sharon "Sherry" Lee Myers, born in tiny Hazel, Kentucky, sings like her Southern soul depends on it in these recordings. Just a few years later, she would become an internationally known singer and songwriter with major hits that would transcend genres and decades.

This collection contains radio performances by DeShannon from 1956 and 1957 as broadcast on WMRO in Aurora, Illinois. These live-on-the-radio recordings have never been issued before, and they are among the few surviving artifacts from DeShannon's early career. This album marks the first time her formative years have been extensively documented with her cooperation.
