Hamburg -

Lesley Rae Dowling was not only popular for her moody records but she also enjoyed a following of fans of her appearances in the fantasy music videos of her songs. This release is a reworked version of the music for a clip for one off her songs directed by Terence (Tully) McCullagh in the 1980s.

Tully found the video of I'm a Woman in his archive recently. He had a copy of his production of the song saved on quarter inch tape. The quality was good so he transferred this to digital format and imported the files into his music production software. He then re-recorded some instruments.  After carefully touching up the overall sound and re-mixed the song.

We are releasing the single under the title of Look at me, I'm a Woman to differentiate from the the original version of the track released on her Unravished Brides album. It is stylistically similar to her debut hit, Grips of Emotion which was also a McCullagh composition.

The original video clip will be reposted on Youtube together with the new soundtrack after the release of the single on the 12th of March 2021.

LTE Distribution   is a Music Distribution firm managed by service provider, Lee Thorp Entertainment.  The evolution of the German distribution activities under the management of Patrick Lee-Thorp, means that Lee Thorp Entertainment (LTE), is still producing (live concerts and studio recordings), marketing, distributing and publishing music. The lapse of restraints of the trade arrangements, allowed Patrick to move part of his digital catalogue to The Orchard in 1997. To begin with it was only the Mountain and Sea Records labels as they charted new waters with Scott Cohen and his colleagues. Physical distribution was with New Music Distribution from their start in 1996. By 2006 LTE was running a distribution business offering services to selected Indie labels from France, Benelux, Germany the UK as well as taking care of the six in-house labels of Songwrights Publishers. It was also exporting finished product to these same countries, which continues. Today LTE Distribution
