Bert Lee Complete Discography
This is a listing of all my albums and recording over the years.
It is not a complete listing of all the songs I've written. That would be about triple the
number on this list. But these are the ones that made it past the Editor in Chief.

This recording, which is a compilation of tunes, some remixed and reimagined that I was asked to make for a presentation in Japan. The reason for this was that around this time I learned my old band the Sheiks had a serious following there, and when I contacted a group of Japanese fans, they requested a special mixed disk.
