Myra Lee is the second album by American singer-songwriter Chan Marshall, also known as Cat Power. The album is named after Marshall's mother. It was released in 1996 on the Smells Like Records label, but songs "We All Die" "Top Expert" "Rockets" and "Fiance" were recorded at the same time of Dear Sir, her previous album. "Great Expectations" is a different (live) version than the one that appears on Dear Sir and "Enough" is a demo of the song that later appeared on What Would the Community Think?
