Let’s be frank, “Lioness: Hidden Treasures” offers very little of the singers best and should not be a substituted as a follow-up to her breakout 2006 release “Back to Black.” Instead, “Lioness” is a collection of assorted demos and covers that should serve as an index to what Winehouse loved: jazz, retro-pop, and classic soul.
Our Day Will Come
Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow - *standout
Valerie - Bruno Mars performed this version on the 2011 MTV VMAs
The Girl from Ipanema - reinvents the classic with scat *recorded at age 18
Wake Up Alone - strongest song on the album that showcases her vocals
Would have never made it to a studio album - “The Cut”:
Between the Cheats
Best Friends, Right
A fan, first time listener, or purist will pick up on the true intention of this album. From Winehouse singing cover songs to stripping down original songs, this collection of music was selected to remind listeners why she was revered in the first place.
