Soul Jazz Records takes on country music – and the result is one of their most compelling collections in years! As you'd guess from the title, there's a definite focus on females here – country singers from the 60s and 70s especially, often presented in unusual tunes that work together perfectly – showing a strong sense of power as the set rolls on, a surprisingly strong feminist bent that most folks might miss in the music! That special focus is what really makes the collection shine – a great ear for tunes we might have missed otherwise, pulled together from the farther reaches of the artists' careers, and given the special Soul Jazz spin in the notes – just to let you know that none of these great qualities were accidental. Titles include "Mr Walker It's All Over" by Billie Jo Spears, "Two Whoops & A Holler" by Jean Shepard, "Tonight My Baby's Coming Home" by Tammy Wynette, "Reunion" by Bobby Gentry, "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels" by Kitty Wells, "I'll Never Do You Wrong" by Diana Trask, "I've Done A Lot Of Living Since Then" by Jeannie C Riley, "Fancy" by Lynn Anderson, "Saunders Ferry Lane" by Sammi Smith, "A Woman Left Lonely" by Jody Miller, and "He's All I Got" by Norma Jean.  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
