Best Single Disc of Tammy's Solo Hits, But Far From Complete
James E. Bagley | Sanatoga, PA USA | 07/24/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Tammy Wynette was the country queen of unstable domesticity. Her tear-stained voice conveyed the effects a rocky marriage has on the kids in such sagas as "D-I-V-O-R-C-E," "Bedtime Story," "I Don't Wanna Play House," and "Kids Say The Darndest Things." She'd try her best to make a relationship work, as evidenced on her signature tune "Stand By Your Man" and "Run Woman Run," but when that wasn't ultimately possible, she would resign herself to getting on with her life the best way she knew how, be it hesitantly ("Til I Can Make It On My Own," "Til I Get It Right"), regretfully ("One Of A Kind," "You And Me"), or defiantly ("Your Good Girl's Gonna Go Bad"). Tammy did record quite a few thoroughly upbeat hits, such as the rousing "Good Lovin' (Makes It Right)" and "Singing My Song," but it is the heartbreakers that Tammy did better than anyone and for which she will always be associated. This collection - the strongest single Wynette disc available - contains twenty of her best solo singles - including all of those mentioned above - released between 1966 (her debut "Apartment # 9") and 1978 (the defiant "Womanhood"), the lone major omission from this period being her spinetingling "Another Lonely Song." Thus, none of her celebrated collaborations with George Jones (get their collection 16 Biggest Hits) or even David Houston (on "My Elusive Dreams") are found here, nor such latterday solo toe-tappers as 1979's "They Call It Making Love" and 1982's "Another Chance." Until an expanded single disc of Tammy's best comes along, the only place to get all of these recordings in one place is her box set Tears of Fire (which contains a lot of filler)."
Tammy you will be missed

"This is an awesome collection. However if you want the definitive collection go buy Tears of Fire. The only reason I bought this Tammy Wynette collection is because Tears of Fire didn't have my favoite song "Womanhood" on it and this one does. Tammy is very missed around the world by her millions of fans. Sometimes known as "The First Lady of Country Music" and also "The Queen of Heartache". She was called the latter because her voice often trembled and shook when she sang making her sound like she was about to cry. Also for the type of songs she wrote and sang. Of course I had heard Tammy's biggest hit "Stand By Your Man" before but the song that made me like her was a duet she sang with George Jones called "Golden Ring". If you really like Tammy Wynette or just want to pay tribute to her life and death, I urge you to buy this album. Thank You, A 14 year old boy named Corey Goodbye Tammy"
Well, there's that voice.

"Tammy "I got my tears in my throat" Wynette has one of the greatest voices in country music history. What can you say about the woman who swallows parts of her words? But I love that voice, and this collection captures the best of the early parts and the most commercially era. What can one say about her classics like "Stand By Your Man" and "D-I-V-O-R-C-E" that hasn't been said before? Tammy is one of the important artists in country music and this captures most of her best hits from the early era. There will never be a voice like that again."
