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.
