Loretta Lynn Van Lear Rose
Some fantastic Quincy Jones Mellow Madness on this album. Where is the followup? Really wasn't expecting anything special from this album--so what if it's Jack White producing Loretta Lynn, we all know that big names does not a great record make.
However, this album is surprisingly good--White manages to bring out Loretta's hillbilly roots in a very authentic, captivating way on some songs; on other cuts, it's more like Loretta singing on a Jack White record, and both sound damn good. I had never bought a Loretta Lynn CD before though I have always admired herbut a glowing review in Rolling Stone prompted me to pick up a copy.
The CD is comprised of simple, amazing songs bursting with intelligence and beauty without seeming contrived or over-produced. Usually in my reviews, I elaborate on choice tracks, but every song here is as good as the song next to it: The CD ranges from rock-n-roll sonic romps to downhome country, the tracks flow together Loretta Lynn Van Lear Rose, and every song is a big-time winner.
Deftly produced by Jack White, Linval Thompson Cool Down Your Temper Lear Rose" draws its stength from Lynn's emotions and life experiences, which are allowed to shine against arrangements that complement not compete with her formidable voice.
Also, the album was recorded on an 8-track, not digitally, which adds to the album's atmosphere and feeling of authenticity. Okay, now that you have finished reading the review against earlier instructionsdo yourself a favor and buy this CD.
Oh, and pick one up for a friend who appreciates amazing music. I am so used to the Randy Holden Population II of the traditional Loretta Lynn, this album had too raucous an instrumental background. Too much drum on many of the songs. Don't care for her doing rock. I liked Van Lear Rose the best, but that was it. Amazing album. Deserves both its Grammys.
Bought it for the duet with Jack white, but the whole album is good. Could not find it on Spotify or iTunes and I don't know why. One person found this helpful.

I am a fan of Loretta and listened to this cd a few weeks ago. Loretta's voice and lyrics are both as good as ever. I believe what makes this recording unique was the unexpected twist in combining Loretta and Jack White's style of music. You'll just have to hear it yourself. Often, the classic records she made with Owen Bradley were cut in a handful of takes, but he was producing a fine-tuned machine. Whitein contrast, keeps things loose and fresh, as if it was a jam session.
The end result is quite different than Lynn 's classic hits in terms of production, but the feel is strikingly similar, since White focuses on the essence of her music and subtly shifts his approach according to the demands of a song.
If it demands it, he'll lay down some crunching guitar, as he does on the aforementioned "Portland Oregon" and the bluesy stomp "Have Mercy. Unlike Rick Rubin 's productions for Johnny Cashwhich were deliberately somber and monochromatic, White 's work on Van Lear Rose is multi-textured, with the layers of steel guitars, muffled drums, and echoed guitars lending a dramatic, impressionistic quality Loretta Lynn Van Lear Rose the songs -- and unlike Daniel Lanois ' productions, it feels organic, not studied.
Van Lear Rose also gives equal import to every side of Lynn 's persona, so this Loretta Lynn Van Lear Rose equally sad and funny, sacred and secular. Various The Harder They Come Original Soundtrack Recording a sheer sonic level, the Loretta Lynn Van Lear Rose is enthralling -- it's easy to get lost in the music, and Lynn sings with a vigor that's startling for a woman of Loretta Lynn Van Lear Rose -- but it's an instant classic because of how that sound is married to set of songs that are among the strongest she's ever had.
On her last studio album, she wrote only one song. Here, she's penned all 13 tracks, and there's a sense that these are songs that she needed to get out of her, particularly in a setting as intimate as this.
While not all the songs are as explicitly personal as "Miss Being Mrs. These are songs that hold their own with her greatest hits, and while it's Loretta Lynn Van Lear Rose anything else she's cut, this is surely one of her great albums.
