In a daunting, but loving task, Amy Winehouse’s family helped producers Mark Rosen and Salaam Remic select songs for a posthumous compilation of music from Amy Winehouse entitled Lioness: Hidden Treasures.
Amy’s dad, Mitch Winehouse, commented on the experience:
“We were fining it difficult to listen to Amy’s music, but we had to listen to it because if it wasn’t up to scratch we wouldn’t have allowed it to go out,” Mitch told Reuters in a recent interview.
“We weren’t pleasantly surprised. We were stunned at how wonderful the album is. (But) at the moment I can’t listen to it. In the years to come I will be able to and people have to make their own minds up.”Amy’s God daughter, Dionne Bromfield, shares the last words of advice received from Amy about working in the music industry, “Always keep your feet on the ground keep your family and friends close to you.” Bromfield is a singer looking to expand to the U.S. market.
Although the album was leaked last month, the CD will be released on Monday, December, 6.
