Curtis Lee

Not Peggy’s brother, nor Spike’s father, nor Bruce’s brother, Curtis Lee, who recorded for the Dunes label, was one of the first recipient’s of the genius of Phil Spector. That was always a mixed blessing; once Spector was out of the picture, Lee’s musical career was no more.

Both of his hits are on the Back To Mono collection.

Curtis Lee:

Pretty Little Angel Eyes – A doo wop revival hit from the summer of 1961. If angels are spiritual beings then they ought not to have eyes, pretty or otherwise. But we all know what he means...
Under The Moon Of Love – Is there a moon of hate? Of anger? Of heartbreak? How about Under The Moon Of Like? Almost made the top 40 in the fall of 1961.
