THE LINER NOTES
Released in August of ’76, ‘Singing My Song’ was the second major compilation of Lynn’s Chart Records sides, acquired and re-issued by Columbia; this release on their Harmony label.
Recorded between 1967 and 71, ‘Singing My Song’s’ ten-song set assembles tracks from all eight of Lynn’s Chart releases, and features four of her biggest singles for the label. Here are ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry’, and ‘If I Kiss You’, both from the pen of country songwriter and Mom, Liz Anderson, two tracks that remind us not only of the creative brilliance of Liz Anderson’s lyrics, but the fluid and seamless pairing of those lyrics and melody with her daughter’s voice. ‘I’ve Been Everywhere’ by Australian Geoff Mack, showcases a hit from her Lawrence Welk days, and ‘He’d Still Love Me', from then husband and producer, Glenn Sutton, is a harbinger of the Countrypolitan phenomenon he orchestrated throughout the nineteen seventies.
A classic Lynn Anderson collection, and now available as a digital download from SONY Music.
