Biography

Yuma, Arizona, USA (1960 – 1968)

Curtis Lee (born 28 October 1941 in Yuma, Arizona, USA) an American Doo-wop and Pop singer of the early 1960s, and was the beneficiary of two great 1961 productions by Phil Spector.

These were “Pretty Little Angel Eyes” (U.S. Top 10) and “Under The Moon Of Love” (U.S. Top 50). In the UK, “Pretty Little Angel Eyes” was a minor hit record, going no higher than 47 in 1961.

Lee began his recording career in 1959, and the following year was signed by Dunes Records. Handsome and photogenic, Lee had a vocal approach close to the teen idols of the period. Spector’s genius with the productions, besides his deft handling of the instrumental support, was to provide fills with strong doo-wop riffing from an R&B vocal group, The Halos, to produce two classic rock ‘n’ roll tunes.

Without Spector’s guiding hand however, the hits simply dried up around 1968.
