Format: Audio CD
K T bucked all trends in popular music by emerging from obscurity in her mid-forties to become (briefly) a major star of country music. This was the album that catapulted her to stardom, deservedly so. Her musical background embraced a variety of musical styles so her music is contemporary country, eighties style.

K T wrote or co-wrote all the songs except the opening track, Wall of tears, which is a great song (co-written by the writer of Don't it make my brown eyes blue) but the album gets even better.

The first of K T's own songs, I'll always come back, is a wonderful ballad but the following track, Younger men, is perhaps the best song of the lot, being about the attraction to a middle-aged woman of younger men. While not uncommon in real life, this is an unusual topic for a song. Many American radio stations, run by middle-aged men who felt threatened by the song, refused to play this track.

However the title track, another song with strong appeal to women, got plenty of airplay and became a huge country hit. A couple of very romantic love songs (Do ya, Lonely but only for you) should please the men.

Old pictures (recorded by the Judds before K T became famous), Dr Dr and Two hearts are the other excellent songs that make up the album.

The big hits from this album have since been re-issued on a greatest hits collection (Songs from an ageing sex bomb) but this album is worth hearing in its entirety. If you enjoy eighties country music, buy this - if you can find it.

This breakthrough album by K.T. Oslin demonstrates the ability of country music to be contemporary, and still maintain roots. The subject matter is country through and through but presented with a grand style and verve from this artist. I'm generally NOT a country fan, but this one's in my collection and I often catch myself humming sections. BUY IT!!!

K.T. Oslin is an awesome vocalist! I am 18, and I literally grew up on this CD. My mother used to play the tape for me, and to this day, it is my all-time favorite country CD. I highly reccommend it for anybody young or... not-so-young. It is an essential for any music lover.

There is a reason why this woman was named songwriter of the year! 80'S Ladies.. even if im not her age, i can totally relate to that song.. Ive grown up listening to K.T. she is my favorite all time country singer. Best way to listen to her, is relax in your favorite chair or bed, close your eyes and let k.t sing to you. You will feel like you are in the studio with her. You feel every emotion she puts into this album. 80s Ladies will always be my favorite album.I've lost count of the number of copies ive gone through these years. You feel her pain as she sings Wall of Tears.. you want her to come back in "I'll always come back" You and K.T rock with "YOUNGER MEN" and "Truly Blue". Memories of your friends flash thru as K.T sings 80s ladies..

If you can't get romantic to this album you can't get romantic!

Many a tiff was forgotten just by putting this album on,lowering the lights,pouring a glass of wine and s-l-o-w dancing. K.T. you know just when to emphasise a word or note,and your voice can only make one think of a kinder gentler time. THANKS for the memories K.T. and please....COME BACK!

My friends and I love listening (and singing along with) to the music on this CD. It has the greatest songs with which we all can identify. We just smile when we're listening and singing to it. More music should be this much fun. K.T. has such a powerful voice. Just love it and you will too if you're a female and can remember being one of the "80's Ladies"!!!
