We’re on a bit of a Lee Conway binge session lately, we have to confess. And really, why wouldn’t we be? Any fan of classic country music, ESPECIALLY Australian fans, will know his name. He’s one of the sweetest slices of the Sweet Peach catalogue, and with albums like “Applewood Memoirs (People)” it really ain’t hard to see why!
This is one of Sweet Peach’s collectors items, usually seen as a rare find, should you happen to grab it on vinyl. And while that’s wonderful for collectors, it’d be a shame if the music itself was just as rare to hear, wouldn’t it be? Luckily, Spotify and all major online streaming services and retailers are here to the rescue… even Youtube’s joined the party with this crisp playlist!
We’ve been having a bit of withdrawal from Conway’s smooth and unique voice since we covered “Adultery”, and this hits the sweet spot just right! His is quite the legacy, and this album is yet another chapter of it that we love to revisit again and again. Throw it in the list – because we got ALL his major work right here on Spotify to satisfy our marathons with ease! Nostalgia within nostalgia – ESPECIALLY when we’re dealing with “memoirs”!
But if you happen to be unfamiliar with Lee Conway, you really are missing out… but luckily, clicking here would be the perfect way to get yourself started!
“Applewood Memoirs (People)” is but a taste of the whole experience waiting for you within Conway’s Spotify catalogue, and within Sweet Peach’s overall catalogue.

And of course, their shiny new website.
The legacy of Jimmy Stewart and the rest of the crew from Sweet Peach is still alive and well, much to our delight.
