The Album That Kick Started The Tammy Wynette Phenomenon

"This is the second (solo) album released by the future "First Lady of Country Music". Her first album (YOUR GOOD GIRLS GONNA GO BAD) had generated one top 40 hit and then her first hit single (of the same name) but the album itself was practically ignored by country fans and radio. TAKE ME TO YOUR WORLD/I DONT WANNA PLAY HOUSE would change all that. I DONT WANNA PLAY HOUSE was a MAJOR hit and would earn Tammy her first Grammy award. Tammy and noted producer Billy Sherill offer a variety of sounds in this album, which was said to be put together rather quickly in order to cash in on the popularity of the single release. Their efforts would pay off and the album would become a best seller. Of course, this was at a period in time when no female vocalist in country music had ever sold a million copies of an album. Tammy would do that in just a few years, with the release of her greatest hits package. But until then, strong performances and solid songs would become the foundation of a Sherill/Wynette production. Listen to the first songs of the first lady and you will be able to rediscover that magic and musical time period. Indeed, Tammy manages to takes US to HER world."
