Although in the last months of her life, her tabloid exploits overshadowed the reason she was in the public eye in the first place, itΓΓé¼Γäós important to remember that Amy Winehouse had undeniable musical talent to back that celebrity up. Looking at her two studio albums, Frank and Back to Black, there wasnΓΓé¼Γäót merely a uniquely commercial sensibility, or a terrific voice, but a versatility, and a humanity that set her apart from her contemporaries. And the posthumously-release Lioness: Hidden Treasures celebrates all of those qualities: collecting unreleased instrumentals and completing production on them, or in some cases, creating new arrangements, producers Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson create a surprisingly satisfying tribute to the late Amy Winehouse that avoids feeling like a roundup of discarded material or a cheap, redundant cash-in for folks who already own her existing output.
The eleven-song collection opens with WinehouseΓΓé¼Γäós cover of Ruby & The RomanticsΓΓé¼Γäó ΓΓé¼┼ôOur Day Will Come,ΓΓé¼┬¥ and RemiΓΓé¼Γäós ska-tinged arrangement of the r&b standard doesnΓΓé¼Γäót alter the core elements of the original song, even as WinehouseΓΓé¼Γäós unpredictable, syrupy delivery gives it new life. ΓΓé¼┼ôBetween the Cheats,ΓΓé¼┬¥ meanwhile, is more straightforward Winehouse fare from her Back to Black era, balancing anachronistic production with her nakedly honest, bittersweet lyricism. (Mayer Hawthorne should think of adding this tune to his repertoire as a tribute song during concerts, because heΓΓé¼Γäód knock it out.) The ΓΓé¼┼ôOriginal VersionΓΓé¼┬¥ of ΓΓé¼┼ôTears Dry On Their OwnΓΓé¼┬¥ augments the album version with a chorus of background voices, offering a slightly more epic sound, but Remi preserves the clarity and intensity of WinehouseΓΓé¼Γäós commanding presence at its forefront.
Although itΓΓé¼Γäós a little scat-jazzy for my particular tastes, WinehouseΓΓé¼Γäós rendition of ΓΓé¼┼ôGirl From IpanemaΓΓé¼┬¥ is pretty terrific, communicating the dreamy seaside feeling of Getz & GilbertoΓΓé¼Γäós original while Remi works overtime giving it a snappy breakbeat. Truthfully, IΓΓé¼Γäóm happier to see more recordings from her Frank days, and songs like ΓΓé¼┼ôHalf TimeΓΓé¼┬¥ and ΓΓé¼┼ôBest Friends, Right?ΓΓé¼┬¥ demonstrate that her old-school sound was a device, not a trap for her creativity, and that she could easily have churned out current-sounding material as well. The discΓΓé¼Γäós closer, ΓΓé¼┼ôA Song For You,ΓΓé¼┬¥ seems to encapsulate all of her different sounds into one track, as Remi takes Leon RussellΓΓé¼Γäós song, places an instrumental behind it that sounds a lot like Isaac hayesΓΓé¼Γäó ΓΓé¼┼ôWalk On By,ΓΓé¼┬¥ and gives her a suitably epic send-off. Mind you, these eleven songs are still no substitute for new material from Winehouse, but given her otherwise limited output, Lioness: Hidden Treasures offers fans a worthy new volume of music to listen to, and further celebrate her incredible, but sadly brief, career as one of the decadeΓΓé¼Γäós most distinctive performers
