Lezli Valentine - I Won't Do Anything

I'm back!

Gonna keep the daily 45 archives alive as best as I can, with the highest possible audio. It's truly touching how many people still write with kind words, or the people I meet/ speak to in real life that this site has made a positive impact upon.

Can't possibly keep up 'every day', but my goal is to repost something from the archives a few times a week, seasoned with the occasional 'new' track.

(originally posted on 10/12/2012)

This record is downright HAUNTING. A lone acoustic guitar picks out the intro and sets the mood, which leads into the brilliant song and arrangement. Lezli Valentine (a founding member of The Jaynetts), turns in such a gorgeous, restrained performance, and is backed by a heavenly group of ladies (or is it Lezli overdubbed?) on backing vocals.

This record sounds like the soundtrack from a dream, and I can't get enough of it. It's so subtle that the depth of what's happening can easily be overlooked through its hypnotic power.

from 1968...

This is a great find. Wonder if it made it onto any compilations. New one on me. Thanks much.
