Highway Diner / Blue Eyed Blues - Lacy J. Dalton

Highway Diner / Blue Eyed Blues
•    Lacy J. Dalton is one of the most under-rated singers in country music.  With a voice closer to Bonnie Raitt than any other country vocalist, Lacy could be described as the female version of Waylon Jennings.

•    June 1986’s "Highway Diner” a No. 32 country chart entry contained a successful single in ‘Working Class Man’ which was belatedly followed up at the year’s end by ‘This Ol’ Town’.  These made Numbers 16 and 33 respectively.

•    Eleven months later came ‘Blue-Eyed Blues’, a ‘half and half’ affair matching new recordings with career highlights.  She teamed with Bobby Bare for ‘It’s A Dirty Job’, a country Top 40 hit in 1983 never previously included on one of her albums, and the legendary George Jones for ‘That’s Good – That’s Bad’.  She then went bluegrass with Earl Scruggs for the new ‘Love Gone Cold’ and finally with David Allan Coe on Bob Dylan’s ‘Gotta Serve Somebody’.

•    Amazingly, Lacy only won one major award (Academy of Country Music’s Top New Female Vocalist in 1980) but awards mean nothing as those with ears will know.  Here is one of the greatest, smoky-voiced honky tonk singers of all time.

•    Both albums appear on CD for the first time.

NB: This title is released July 28 and will not be dispatched before this date.

The Very Best of Janie / Saddle The Wind
•    Janie Fricke’s vocal tones enhanced the recordings of many country stars, as one of the most sought-after backing singers in Nashville.  It’s said that producer Billy Sherrill signed her up in her own right in 1977 after a group of country radio DJs pleaded with him to reveal the identity of the distinctive tones they’d heard on so many hits!

•    One of the most popular female country singers; from 1977-1989 Janie had charted 38 singles including 9 No.1s. Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year in 1982 and 1983.  Academy of Country Music Awards Top Female Vocalist in 1983.  

•    "The Very Best Of Janie” released in 1985 includes two Grammy-nominated songs ‘Your Heart’s Not In It’ and ‘She’s Single Again’.  The album contains nine Top 10 singles, five of which reached No. 1 in the country charts.  The bonus track on this album was the previously unreleased duet with Merle Haggard ‘Ridin’ High’.

•    "Saddle The Wind” released in 1988 may not be as hit-packed as its companion but is regarded by her fans as one of her finest albums.

•    Annoyed by mis-pronunciations of her name, she changed the spelling to ‘Frickie’ in 1986 but changed it back to the original spelling a few years later.
