Of all the artists/albums I’ve covered in this series so far, and along with Elvis Presley and perhaps Dusty Springfield, I’m most familiar with the work of Loretta Lynn. I’ve heard plenty of her records, I have a few. I like a lot. But…I hadn’t ever heard this one. I knew the song already. And I recognised a few others on here from a compilation or two.
But a fabulous album this is, and no surprise really. It’s Lynn’s eighth – she’s well established as writer, singer, performer. And this has her in fine form.
She is of course still in fine form. Judging by her most recent album.
So many great songs that she’s written and/or owned.
She’s one of my favourites. And this was simply a reminder to listen to even more of her records, to find even more of her recordings…
