Early Tanya At Her Best

"A prior review states all these songs were on earlier albums. This is incorrect. These are two original albums..the second and third of her career. Both contain some of the earliest hits that established her as a force in Country Music. What's Your Mama's Name became her first #1 single. Blood Red and Goin' Down is a classic, Would You Lay With Me also a classic. These were recorded at ages 14 and 15 and both CD's showcase the voice that was once called "An American Dream." For me, the real reason to buy this double cd is that between the two there are nine songs that do NOT appear on any other Tanya CD. They, until now, could only be heard if you had the original vinyl albums. Four of the songs alone are worth the price. Those being.. California Cotton Fields, Old Dan Tucker's Daughter, What If We Were Running Out Of Love and my personal favorite.. The Baptism Of Jesse Taylor. This is early seventies country at its best."
Tanya's early classics
Peter Durward Harris | Leicester England | 07/04/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)
"With two important bonus tracks (Delta Dawn and Love's the Answer, both from Tanya's debut album) added to Tanya's second and third Columbia albums, this is a far stronger collection than any Greatest hits album from Sony/Columbia. The only significant omission is Jamestown Ferry.Against that, there are many excellent album tracks, including Tanya's covers of Teddy Bear song, Pass me by, Let me be there, Bed of roses and Why me lord - but this collection is particularly interesting for all the original songs included, many of them thought-provoking, none more so than the opening What's your mama's name?, which asks a child about an unknown father.Although it's many years since I heard the original albums (I used to have all her Columbia vinyl LP's), Collectables chose wisely in compiling this CD. Tanya's debut was wonderful, but the two LP's that followed it were even better.This is classic traditional country music. Tanya's voice (a sort of country Tina Turner, if you see what I mean) may not appeal to everybody, but if you like the voice and you like traditional country, this will you suit you ideally."
One of the Greatest Country Music Stars

"Tanya Tucker has such a beautiful voice. This is a great CD for anyone that appreciates beautiful Country music. Of course my favorite song is Tanya's signature hit, "What's Your Mama's Name." Her voice sounds so rich and strong. It almost brings tears to my eyes. Tanya Tucker is a very talented singer."
