If you've never heard Loretta Lynn, you are missing out on one of the finest singers and songwriters the genre has ever known. If that's the case, THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION is the ideal place to start. Even if you have Lynn's tough-minded, irresistibly catchy tunes and her distinctive, textured-but-sweet-as-honey voice represented by a few assorted albums, it is hard to better this perfectly selected and sequenced 25-track compilation. In fact, with its generous playing time, impeccable sound, and beautiful accompanying booklet packed with notes, THE DEFINITIVE is, quite literally, just that.
1964's "Wine, Women, and Song" leads off the set, one of a series of Lynn's justly famous "ain't-gonna-take-it" songs. Following the floozy-bashing anthem "You Ain't Woman Enough (To Take My Man), come a seemingly endless stream of number one hits, including "Don't Come Home A-Drinkin' (with Lovin' on Your Mind," "Fist City" (arguably the greatest tough guy song ever sung by a woman), and "One's on the Way," one of several duets with Conway Twitty. Lynn's witty, progressive take on social issues ("The Pill") and her nakedly autobiographical writing ("Coal Miner's Daughter") are also here; but every track sparkles. This is an indispensable cornerstone of any country music collection.
Artist Overview
The first country feminist, Lynn developed a hard-hitting persona as the wife who stood no nonsense from her rivals or her husband. Her 1966 hit "You Ain't Woman Enough" exemplified her uncompromising honky tonk approach. She answered Tammy Wynette's "Stand By Your Man" in 1975 with the double-standard message song "The Pill," which was banned by several US radio stations. She also formed a successful alliance with Conway Twitty, scoring numerous duet hits. Lynn's bestselling autobiography, COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER, became a popular 1980 film, in which Sissy Spacek won an Oscar for her portrayal of Lynn.
