lesa & ross Lesa & Ross (coloured vinyl LP, £12.95)label: Great Pop Supplement
This LP is of historical interest in many ways. Lesa Aldridge was the long-term partner and muse of Alex Chilton and a key collaborator on the legendary sessions for Big Star's 'Third'/'Sister Lovers' LP. Produced by the late great Jim Dickinson 'Lesa & Ross' is a heady brew consisting of eight fabulous songs including covers of The Velvets and The Shadows Of Knight, which is apt as there are general nods to '60s garage inspired spiky pop throughout, via the psych and drone leanings of Spacemen 3 and some of Kip's work with Cloudland Canyon. This is a wonderful album representing Lesa's first released recordings since a 7-inch in the late '70s/early '80s, released as a limited vinyl only pressing of 500 copies. There's a beautiful, previously unseen cover photograph of Lesa with Alex Chilton and an insert featuring insightful sleeve notes from Ross Johnson.
