Recensione album

In 1965, Lena Horne signed to United Artists Records, for which she recorded four albums in two years: Feelin' Good, Lena in Hollywood, Soul, and the Christmas collection Merry From Lena. This brief, budget-priced compilation is drawn from the first two of those albums. Of course, it does not live up to its title. Nor does it correspond to the description in Don Ovens' short, unreliable biography ("This collection features much of the music that was popular during Lena's movie days" is a false statement).
