CD Reviews

It's About Time Sony Music!!!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Thank You Sony Music. I am thrilled you finally released some of Lynn Anderson's music on CD.Its really hard to believe that one of your hottest selling country acts of the seventies has had very little material released on CD.This is a great CD! It contains 10 of Lynn's biggest hits and its wonderful to hear all of the original versions.LETS GO SONY!!! Give us more.A complete box set would be nice.Im no marketing expert, but I think it would be worthwhile to your company. There are many Lynn Anderson fans waiting for you to respond."
What's here is great, it is just too brief

"Columbia Records of course is where Lynn Anderson garnered her greatest success. Two men played key roles in Anderson's career at Columbia. Singer-songwriter Joe South got a boost when Anderson hit it big early on with his compositions "Rose Garden" (her signature recording), "Fool Me," and "How Can I Unlove You." Even more important was the writing and production involvement of husband Glenn Sutton, whom Anderson married just prior to joining Columbia. At Columbia, Sutton matched the brisk pace of Anderson's best Chart recordings with his narcissistic songwriting efforts "You're My Man" and "What A Man, My Man Is." He also encouraged Anderson to stretch stylistically. "Sing About Love" brought out a breezily seductive side, while "Keep Me In Mind" and her remake of Johnny Ray's "Cry," showed Anderson could effectively go from delicate to bombastic within the course of a ballad. All of the ten singles found here were hits between 1970 - 1974, the first half of Anderson's Columbia tenure. She had a lot of country hits after that, including "All The King's Horses," "I Love How You Love Me," and "Isn't It Always Love" which are available only on the excellent out of print Columbia Anthology from Renaissance Records a few years ago. For now, this brief collection is the best place to get the most hits from her peak years (Collectables' Anderson cd Rose Garden/You're My Man has 26 tracks, but only six of them were hits)."
