This is my most hated form of country. Sad sack crooner bullshit. Love sucks, you suck, I suck (but I'm going to blame it on you), everything's terrible so let's just make everything even more terrible (but it's your fault). I found exactly ZERO songs that were worth a second listen or even half a first listen. Hated it. This is why people don't like country music.

Very Dolly. A diversion from my usual listening but thoroughly enjoyable. Interesting lyrics in relation to the recent discussions about women's safety and consent. The typical country theme of women fighting for their men, who, ruined with drink, treat them ill!

I'm very glad this album was included. Loretta Lynn's contribution to country music cannot be overstated. Her vocal performance is powerful and subtle. Female country singers are often noted for their powerful delivery, but Lynn showcases immense control and damn near perfect delivery (see 'I Really Don't Want to Know' for a masterclass in vocal delivery). The music itself is well crafted, and is more complex with its chord changes than one would think. It is designed to deliver the exact emotional resolution (or lack thereof) that the songwriter intends. In that, it excels.

No conocía a Loretta Lynn. Creo que me he convertido en fan de Loretta Lynn (creo... es difícil de decir con alguien que por lo que leo tiene 60 discos y que acabo de conocer). Si hubiera un premio para mayor grado de disparidad entre calidad de la portada y calidad de la música sin duda al menos llegaría a los finalistas. Mientras lo escuchaba me llegó un punto de "eureka" de por qué de primera instancia me agradó tanto su música; su voz no se siente trabajada, justamente esa cara de "señora del coro de la iglesia" de la portada le queda a la perfección porque se siente como si fuera un amateur con una voz espectacular. Se oye dulce, simple, con potencia pero sin querer abusar de ella ni intentando lucirse. No se qué tan acertada sea mi apreciación sobre su poco o mucho entrenamiento vocal pero cualquiera que sea la respuesta el sonido de su voz es maravilloso. Pasando al siguiente punto, es un disco que se siente obligado a que se le ponga atención a las letras sobre todo al considerar que es un disco de Country en 1967. Temáticamente se me hace muy interesante y quizá importante el ver como se empiezan a colar ideas de la importancia de la mujer en este género y con un dejo de "no mamen pinches hombres". No podría decir que fuera un disco "feminista," no se siente sermoneador ni como tal que reproche directamente, pero sí como el inicio de algo que llevará a una mayor importancia temática para la mujer en el género. Me agrada que por un lado le baja el romantizar la idea del Outlaw Country (de lo cual quizá soy bastante culpable, sorry-not sorry, me sigue gustando aunque comprendo sus puntos problemáticos), y habla sobre el otro lado de la moneda y cómo en la vida real el "forajido" el alcohólico irredimible e incluso criminal es algo que a nadie le cae bien. En cuanto a su música es country country, no se complica, suena a lo que se piensa cuando alguien menciona el género, con mucha calidad, con la suavidad esperada que si uno no oye la letra te puede poner en un estado casi zen y si escuchas las letras a veces llegas a esa distonía entre una música dulce y letras que sorprenden en su temática; de eso se trata el country y en ese aspecto solo puedo decir que está muy bien armado. Una sorpresa muy agradable para algo que de inicio pensé iba a ser algo totalmente estándar o que hasta me iba a aburrir.

This is a high mark on this style of sound. I Really Don't Want To Know is begging for a modern cover. Tomorrow Never Comes is a stage for Loretta to really air out what she can do. The Devil Gets His Dues has this awesome major 7th root vocal movement and it kicks ass. This whole album is great!

Love her voice. So emotive. Really enjoy the arrangements and the mix too. Stripped down to the essentials so you can hear each element distinctly with the perfect amount of reverb and doubling thrown on the voice. It's so well balanced. A very warm and comfortable sound. Plus, she is a total badass. Nothing but respect for the brutal honesty being conveyed here.

J’imagine que les paroles que chante Loretta Lynn ont été considérées comme « simplistes » et de peu d’intérêt. Or elle traite de travail émotionnel, de charge mentale aussi bien qu’on le ferait aujourd’hui. C’est une personne qui parle vrai. Les mélodies sont accrocheuses, la voix agréable. Une belle découverte pour moi

I'm guessing this was another "not-random" album just like The Queen is Dead due to Loretta Lynn dying yesterday. Regardless, I appreciate it because Loretta has a great voice and made pretty progressive music for the 1960s country scene. The title track was great and all of the other songs were super fun. It's one of those albums where you can't go wrong with any of the songs and it's just a straight up fun album.

Pros: the title track is amazing, her voice is great, and the rebellious undertones were probably pretty fresh at the time. Cons: slow in parts. If you’re not sad, the slow songs drag.

Everything about this. The slide guitar. The fantastic honky tonk riffs. This album is top notch. This one wants me to fire up the big rig and get those 18 wheels truckin down I-10 into the arms of a stranger. It's a lullaby for cheaters and broken hearts. Fabulous piece of Americana and it was lovely to hear for the first time.

An enjoyable 28 minute album with the usual country instrumentation (steel guitar, honky-tonk piano, stand up bass). The main attraction though is Loretta Lynn's sweetly robust vocals. The format of an up-tempo track followed by a ballad works really well, mainly because Lynn handles both with equal aplomb. Amongst the other progressive sounds pop sounds of 1967 (Jimi Hendrix, The Doors etc) this probably sounded a bit dated even then, but on it's own term it's a lovely, charming record. I may well be a closet country music fan!

I'm not big into country music and I'm well aware of that. But going through this challenge of listening of all these albums has definitely opened me up to this genre. Loretta's singing is beautiful, has mildly repetitive lyrics (I assume this is due to the era). I can appreciate it for what it is, but being said probably wouldn't listen again. Saved tracks: The Shoe Goes On The Other Foot Tonight, I Can't Keep Away From You, Tomorrow Never Comes, Get What 'Cha Got and Go

¡Es como oír a Lurleen Lumpkin! Country del bonito, sin irse demasiado a las raíces — como lo que hemos oído de Gram Parsons — ni ponerse tan redneckoso como para sacar banderas confederadas. Sin embargo, desde la primera canción perdió credibilidad con su "But liquor and love, they just don't mix". ¿Qué clase de country es este?

Con tantos discos no creo que sea el único ni el mejor que vamos a escuchar, creo que está en la lista por el significado de las canciones más que por el estilo musical, tienen un mensaje muy fuerte hacia las mujeres que en aquel tiempo debió haber sido escandaloso tanto para el género musical como para la sociedad

Creo que el aspecto más interesante de este disco, además de los vocales de Loretta, es el tema de sus canciones. Son temas que hablan del empoderamiento de las mujeres, con todos los peros y asegunes que se puedan hacer considerando la época y lugar. Sin duda debió ser vanguardista. Mi calificación no está relacionada tanto a la “calidad” de la música, sino a mis gustos personales. Si bien volvería a escuchar el disco de nuevo, no me veo buscando escucharlo de forma activa.

Inmediatamente me recordó a June Carter pero después sí logré agarrarle su propio estilo. Country sufrido y romántico como debe ser, pero también es interesante su postura feminista (No llegues borracho, no me estés diciendo que nos vamos a casar, hoy me toca salir a mi). No sé si es revolucionaria en ese aspecto pero no conocía alguien que lo hiciera así de frontal. Un disco por demás agradable de 3.5 estrellas que se queda, tristemente en 3, por su probabilidad de que lo vuelva a poner completo. Songs: Tomorrow Never Comes, Don't Come Home A-Drinkin', The Foot Goes In The Other Foot Tonight

Anyone who has been unfortunate enough to live with me knows I bloody love Country music. Not the pandering nonsense of your Keith Urbans singing about fucking tractors when hes never driven one in his life but your great songwriters and performers like Dolly Parton, Kris Kristoffersen, and Johnny Cash. I'm aware of Loretta Lynn but had never really listened to an album. Luckily Loretta falls into the latter category. A nice collection of well written country songs. Unfortunately not by her- Dolly she ain't, but she sings them well enough. Not the best of its genre and doesn't do anything for me to stand out from the crowd. Highlight: The Devil gets his dues, I Got Caught 3/5

I don’t like country for the most part, but I do like the down in the small town sound of this album. Loretta can carry a tune. She’s not an elite voice, but still very good. The musical arrangements are simple most of the time, allowing the straightforward lyrical storytelling and Loretta’s voice to feature. The title track, Devil Gets His Due, and Get What ‘Cha Got And Go are all nice tunes that have a faster, driving beat. It feels like these songs are taking me somewhere. There are too many songs that are just too slow to keep my interest, such as Saint To A Sinner, I Don’t Want To Know, and There Goes My Everything. They feel like I’m stuck in the muck. Aside from this album, I found out that Loretta was a country music pioneer. She was the country music artist of the decade (the only woman to do so) for the 1970s. She also married a 21 year old that she had known for a month when she was 15. She had 4 kids before she turned 21. Loretta wrote a lot of songs supporting women’s issues and has recorded 70!!! albums over her career. Quite a lot of accomplishments.

This album is downright SCANDALOUS! If I have to guess, she's gotta live someplace in Texas 'cause she sounds miserable and all the dudes she sings about are cheatin' drunk assholes. I think Loretta needs to get out of whatever this situation is that she's got happening. Perhaps there's a small mountain town of coal miners she might be happier in...? I love the brevity of these songs and there are some really great verses dripping with animosity. Here are two of my favorites: "You better wash that sneaky smile right off of your face For I just might to knock it off and put you in your place Just like the wild wild wind all you do is blow You say I'm holdin' you back but baby I'll help you pack So get what'cha got and go." And the second, from The Devil Gets His Dues, which may have served as inspiration for a girl named Left Eye Lopes, in 1994: "Well, your little play house is sittin' on sticks of dynamite And I get mad tonight and light the fuze If you come in and find out that my dog bites You'll know the devil's here collectin' dues." I think the point of this is that Loretta is a strong woman, has put up with a lot of shit, and she's realizing that Texans are assholes so she's gonna pack up her things and go. All I can say is 'Amen.'

Well that was pretty comedic, I enjoyed all the funny rhymes and these upbeat songs and cheating on your man to get him back for doing the dirty on you. As ever, country is not my thang. BUT this was entertaining

Disc de layback country; 100% old school amb la veu i presència d'una de les grans del génere. El tema titular és un clàssic merescut (i molt divertit). La resta, ideal per disfrutar conduint en una posta de sol o en un capvespre estiuenc mirant com es posa el sol al mar

There are a good couple of songs here, but the majority are a bit of a snooze. The biggest draw here is definitely Loretta's voice, she has some major pipes. A nice record but nothing too memorable.

That album cover, that title. That voice though. At times a bit too honky tonk, the ballads are the best. Imagine what they would say about a 28 minute album in the reviews if this was released today.

Lovely vocals, loved the simple and universally relatable lyrics. I'm not a huge fan of folk music. I find it can get quite repetitive and it starts to feel formulaic after a while. And maybe it's just the time of year, but many tracks in this album reminded me of cheesy a slightly grating Christmas songs. The emotion in the music felt... sterilised? The rawness was removed so it fit into a neat little melody with similar instrumentals. I did like the pure vengeance in "Saint to Sinner" though :D Didn't listen to the full album but I appreciate why this would be on the list. Tempted to give a 2 but I won't let my personal bias dictate the score too much. Don't imagine I'll revisit this, but I know that if I gave it a chance it would probably grow on me. Which, imo, is a sign of good music. My taste is too underdeveloped to appreciate it fully. Saved.

I struggled to rate this one, and listened to it repeatedly, so at least the album was short. One problem is I don't know many of the originals so it's hard for me to gauge how good her re-interpretations are. And then the backing music is standard fare in my opinion (barely noticeable), so I'm really evaluating her vocals. She can warble, that's for sure. But I don't know if it's enough for me to round up a 3.5 to a 4.

My initial thought was, bah, country & western, and that the title was amusing. Then midway through the opening track and realised the subject matter was more serious than the initial lightheartedness. I think Loretta Lynn brings the honesty and grit of a woman who is frustrated with the status quo (in the mid/late-60s) and wants to be treated better. Doubt I'd choose to listen again, but I respect it and suspect she gave a voice to many a frustrated housewife.

A great voice, great hurtin' songs, many with reference to the devil and a few about cheatin' on a guy as a reprisal for him cheatin' on you. I like the fact that she and her sister wrote the title track which hit #1.

I can immediately see the influence and inspiration of Loretta's music had on Lurleen Lumpkin from the Simpsons. Seriously though, this album and music has been the influence of many aspiring female country music singers, including contemporary artist's such as, Neko Case. Most of the classic country music subject matter is covered, with a checklist of the essentials; drinking, lovin', cheating and don't need no man to run my life. Not my kind of music, but it was amusing and interesting.

There sure was a lot going on in 1967! I find the aggressively non-glamorous, dare I say homemaker, vibe of the cover art interesting considering the album title and overall content. The album starts strong with the attitude filled title track and the rest of the tracks clippity-clop along after at a fair pace. Loretta has full and effective control over her instrument and a flawless backing band. The lyrical content is full on women scorned with a sweet candy shell. The overarching theme seems to be "it's not all my fault". Although I wouldn't want to tangle with her (or her man!), I do think this material would be a hoot to see live. That said, this is full twang territory and a lot to take all at once. Also I think possibly two wrongs don't make a right; the point of view, though arguably feminist for 1967, feels as old fashioned to me now as the music. If I liked country I'm sure I would love this album, but I don't. I enjoyed this album more than I thought I would, but I didn't love it.

Loretta's got a lovely voice and the band play very professionally. This plays along pleasantly enough: I'm finding even fillers like 'Tomorrow never comes' easy playing as a background sound. I'm happy I played this but the only reason was this poll. More educational than pleasurable and at 28 minutes it's not exactly value for money.......

Not very good. Her voice is somewhat annoying and the songs are just kinda sad. But not in a good sad way, in a way that makes me pity this woman, and to an extent all women who lived in America in the 60s. The instrumentals were mostly just boring too but nothing was offensive so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I occasionally quite enjoy Country music, but think I need to be in the mood for it. I was very much not in the mood when I listened to this. It annoyed me. The subject matter seems very insular and mundane. Having said that, for what it is, this seems fine. Loretta Lynn has a nice enough voice and the album has a good variety of pace. Also on the plus side, I really enjoyed its brevity. The longest song is 2:53, and it gets through all 12 tracks in 28 mins. Many other albums would benefit from this conciseness. 2/5

Solo female country singer, Loretta Lynn, created a fun collection of different tunes for your listening pleasure. Some songs are slow and some are fast; there's a song for any mood. Also this album was #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Albums list, and her single, title song was #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles list.

Hard to believe this album, with its female empowerment overtones, was recorded in 1967! About half the songs turn the songs of heartache on their ear, as she takes the reigns of her own story. I might rather listen to Patsy if I’m in a twangy mood (and there might be a little more twang here than I’d normally like) and the overall sound gets a little repetitive. Still, there’s no denying the musicianship of her band - I particularly loved the slide guitar work on the otherwise forgettable “Shoe Goes on the Other Foot”.

Is it a concept album, telling the story of a broken relationship? Because there's almost no actual storytelling here. It's a lot of feelings, but I wanted to hear more details about the story of the relationship. She doesn't seem to share proof of his cheating? Apparently he has a drinking problem, and hangs out with his friends too much. The first four songs are boring and repetitive, but the pace and mood picks up with "Shoe Goes on the Other Foot Tonight." However, it turns back mopey again and falls doesn't seem to follow through on the story and character development hinted at in "Saint to Sinner." As for the music itself, its too twangy for my taste. So many country singers overdo the twang and accent (just like Scott Stapp and many others overdid it trying to copy the throaty thing early grunge singers popularized - that's right, 90% of country music is to it's genre as Creed is to alternative rock). (And yes, I realize Loretta Lynn probably was the forerunner here that inspired many singers that followed. At least(?) these songs are shorter than punk songs - is this normal for country?
