Having always divided opinion with her controversial private life while ultimately possessing one of the greatest voices of her generation, Amy Winehouse's life came to a tragic end in the summer of 2011. Lioness: Hidden Treasures is an album that features previously unreleased material from the late singer, including a duet with rapper Nas on "Like Smoke" and a touching cover of Ruby & the Romantics' 1963 hit single "Our Day Will Come."
Entertainment Weekly (p.71) - "It's only on Leon Russell's 'A Song for You' that it's clear she had anything left to give after BLACK. Recorded at home in the spring of 2009, it reveals the singer at her most raw..." -- Grade: B-

My sister bought this recently, and I have to say, Amy Winehouse was an amazing singer with real talent, despite her bad choices in life. This is a beautiful album, with a few different versions of old favourites. A few songs - Valerie comes to mind - can get you up to dance, and others are lovely and slow, good for easy listening. I'll be buying this myself, I think.
