Lisa Lee- I’m Taken By You 7”

Hope everyone is keeping safe and well out there. Here’s a little slice of 7” synth pop bliss that should keep you cool on these hot summer nights (or vice versa if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere).

This 7” was released in 1984 and features vocalist Lisa Lee, a US-based singer. Both tracks were co-written by Lee and her band. According to Discogs, Lee released a separate 12” in 1990, produced by Ronald Burrell and featuring a more house/electro style, but I’m not at all convinced that this is the same Lisa Lee, based on a comparison of both tracks. Perhaps someone can shed a little light on this one (or update the dang Discogs entry, accordingly).

As for this single, both tracks hit the same sweet spot as early Berlin or SSQ/Stacey Q recordings – fast, high energy synths and catchy hooks galore. Not much more I can tell you about this one, so we’ll keep it brief – hope you all enjoy!

  1. Hey there – just wanted to mention that Lisa Lee also has a track that appears on the OST to the film ‘Radioactive Dreams’. The track title is ‘Eat You Alive’; why it doesn’t appear in her discogs entry, I’m not sure, but she is credited under the entry for the soundtrack.

      song checks out – that’s definitely her! might be a good argument to move this single to this (2) entry…

    Wow, I absolutely loved both of these songs, would definitely be interested to hear more from her. Thanks for the work you’re doing, bringing these forgotten treasures to light!

  4. I just discovered this artist from a purchase of 45’s from an estate sale.
    Record is in mint condition, and I have a personal letter from her to a DJ who I assume the estate belonged to.
