LORETTA LYNN (363)

Blue Kentucky Girl / I Like 'Em Country (RVCD-363)

Finally available on CD for the first time, Raven presents two of LORETTA LYNN’s finest album – Blue Kentucky Girl (Decca, 1965) and I Like ‘Em Country (Decca, 1966). Blue Kentucky Girl and I Like ‘Em Country are both highly sought-after works and are perfect examples of Lynn’s passionate and confident Nashville sound. As well as being the “Coal Miner’s Daughter”, the original “Honky Tonk Girl” and recipient of numerous CMA Female Vocalist of the Year awards, Lynn remains “one of the classic country singers... she helped forge the way for strong, independent women in country music” – All Music Guide. This great value 2-for-1 collection boasts the two albums and adds a generous eight bonus tracks.

Lynn was one of the most prolific country hit makers and these albums yielded the US Country Top 10 hits ‘Blue Kentucky Girl’, ‘The Home You’re Tearin’ Down’ and ‘Dear Uncle Sam’. I Like ‘Em Country was one of her biggest album sellers (Country #2) while the bonus tracks have been culled from the #1 Country LP You Ain’t Woman Enough. There continues to be a resurgence of interest in Loretta Lynn’s music and she became an Alt-Country star in recent years after recording a well-received comeback album in 2004 with Jack White (from Detroit garage-punk duo the White Stripes). With 32 tracks of superb quality audio and color booklet with informative liner notes this is a must-have collection for the Loretta Lynn aficionado.
