"COURTYARD CAFÉ" is the 2005 release from Galvestonian George Douglas Lee. This live recording features Lee in a solo acoustic performance recorded at the Courtyard Café in Galveston. Twelve tracks containing fourteen songs comprise this project that has Lee telling stories of life in his poignant style. Blues undertones with rock, pop, folk, and country influences make this a diverse project. Lee pens all the cuts on this album and is the sole performer on cuts like "Street Corner Blues" and arguably the best cut, "Maybe Someday." Many of you may have seen Lee perform around the Island, and here's your chance to take home some of the music you're used to hearing. I can almost taste the salt air of the Gulf as I listen to Lee's songs. They remind me so much of Galveston, where I spent so many years. In addition to Lee's new solo career, after many years fronting a rock band, he has other accolades. An accomplished playwright, an author, and an actor, Lee keeps busy since moving back to the Island where he was born. George joins other Lee's of Galveston music fame, like my old friends Gary Lee, Grady Lee, and Mark Lee (no relation). I know a guy named Terry Lee who is an Elvis impersonator, but I don't think that matters right now. Just buy the George Douglas Lee disc and experience a "nuevo-renaissance" heretofore only dreamed of.
