THE LINER NOTES
Released on the heels of 'I'm Alright', 'With Strings' was Chart Records' last Lynn Anderson Hurrah, and the second pickup LP Slim Williamson and Company would produce on her.
Produced by Williamson in the Fall of 1971 with a nod to both Glenn Sutton and the Countrypolitan sound he created that was infusing itself to virtually act in the business, 'With Strings' was just that: ten of Lynn's most memorable tracks from her Chart Records masters re-imagined, and re-tooled with the help of A-list session player and arranger, Bill Purcell.
With a cue from Sutton, Purcell has taken many of these classic songs and given them a new texture, a new sense of melody and movement. Subtle, tasteful string arrangements woven deftly around Lloyd Green's masterful steel, Slim Williamson's simple, uncomplicated productions, and of course, Lynn Anderson's legendary voice.
A rare treat for the serious Lynn Anderson collector.
