RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2014
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.
Released in 1967 and 1968 these Electric Prunes albums were certainly something different ie progressive, psychedelic, religious rock.
The “Mass In F Minor” is best known for the song ‘Kyrie Eleison’ which was featured in the movie soundtrack of Easy Rider. Instrumentally the Prunes only appeared on the first three tracks. Jim Lowe, whose vocals were double-tracked for effect, later commented “David Axelrod was so far above what we as a garage band were able to deliver that outside musicians were used to complete the recording, including members of Canadian band The Collectors (later to become Chilliwack)”.
“There’s A Little Bit Of Hank In Me” is a tribute to the great Hank Williams and has always been a favourite album among Charley Pride fans. “Burgers & Fries” album from 1978 reached No. 7 in the album charts and produced three hit singles.
