Amy Winehouse: Lioness – Hidden Treasures
John Calvert, Quietus, The, 14 December 2011
LIONESS: Hidden Treasures is an appropriately muted set, with Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi producing an honourable and moving tribute to the Amy Winehouse. In it, Winehouse sings her words, and those of others, to convey her hopes and dreams for a happier future that would never arrive. Early recordings of an 18-year old star-in-the-making hold tragic poignance — Winehouse unwitting, the listener knowing better.
