Jasmine's commitment to classic country music has never been in doubt. This month we introduce a new series that focuses on the great country ladies of the 50s and early 60s, with a superb compilation that brings together the early recordings of two of the genre's more revered artists - Loretta Lynn and Jan Howard.
Loretta and Jan (wife of noted songwriter Harlan Howard) both made their first records in the late 1950s and happily, both are still alive and still occasionally releasing new music in the 21st century.
In this collection you will find the tracks on which both women built their reputations - among them all of Loretta's early sides for the small Zero label, and all of Jan's solo recordings for Challenge and Sundown. The tracks include many early hits by both, including 'I'm A Honky Tonk Girl' and 'Success' from Loretta and 'The One You Slip Around With' and 'Pick Me Up On Your Way Down' from Jan.
The style of these tracks and others here is pure unadulterated honky tonk with fiddles, steel guitars and none of the smoothing or sweetening that 'The Nashville Sound' was built around. They sound all the better for it!
Two living legends paid tribute to here in one great collection - remastered, as always, from the finest available sources! - and a shoo-in for a warm response from all who enjoy vintage country music as it's supposed to sound.
