    Here’s Brenda Lee! is the title of Vocalion Records’ 1967 reissue of Brenda Lee’s Grandma What Great Songs You Sang!, originally released in 1959 by Decca (DL 78873), and previously reissued as Brenda Lee Sings Songs Everybody Knows in 1961. In this version, two tracks were omitted.

    The cover design uses two similar typefaces. The album title features Markus J. Low’s Basilea, a roman with tiny flare serifs, released by VGC shortly before. The song titles are set right-aligned, in alternating line colors. They are in Hermann Zapf’s serifless roman Optima, which was first presented by Stempel in 1958.
