BRENDA LEE MELSON - THE LOVE GAME


Brenda Lee Melson was Brenda Lee Jones, mysteriously re-named for this record. Brenda's career included a run in the group Dean & Jean (she was Jean) as well as working with artists such as Tmmy Tucker and Groove Holmes. Born in Ohio, she fled to New York at a young age and had a recording career that lasted many years.

Plain and simply, this is a fun record that would never take a prize as an unforgettable song, but every now and then I sure can dig some good mindless fun; especially when it involves a hot rhythm section and a voice as powerful as Brenda's!


from 1967...

Her married name was Brenda Melson whereas her birth name was Jones. No idea why she used her married name for this disk.
