Loretta Lynn – Don’t Come Home a Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ On Your Mind)
Welcome to September Songstress Spotlight!
For the month of September, when it comes to 1001 album reviews, it will be all ladies, all the time.
And speaking of ladies, I have the splendid Sarca @ caughtmegaming to thank for both this month’s logo & theme title.
Hope back to school day went well for everyone, enjoy the month!

Songstress #1: Loretta Lynn
I really like old country.
There’s something about the harmonies, pedal steels, and saloon-style piano that just works for me.
I can’t comment on how Don’t Come Home a Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ On Your Mind) works in other listening situations but it’s been a terrific quiet evening selection.
I also can’t see myself shortening Don’t Come Home a Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ On Your Mind) to a more snappy acronym; it’s a contender for best chatty/dropped Gs album title on the 1001 list.
My LP isn’t in great shape but the continuous crackle somehow enhances more than it distracts.
Although I don’t demand songwriting from my singers, it’s nice to see when the singer is credited with writing or co-writing the strongest tracks as Loretta was here.
A strong start to the September Songstress Spotlight!
