Editorial Reviews

With this Real Gone release, we take a long-overdue look at the career of pioneering country-pop crossover artist Jody Miller, whose mellow mix of folk, country, rock and pop influences paved the way for the radio-friendly recordings of such female singers as Olivia Newton-John, Anne Murray and Linda Ronstadt. Jody first hit the charts in 1965 with "Queen of the House," her answer song to Roger Miller's "King of the Road," but in 1970 she signed to Epic and, under the guidance of Nashville legend Billy Sherrill, notched a string of chart hits throughout the decade, all 25 of which appear on this 69-minute collection. Most of these songs have never appeared on CD before, and they come with notes featuring quotes from Jody herself as well as photos from her private collection. Pure country ear (and eye) candy!

Just like I remember her.

I also note that while Real Gone Records touts the photos included with the set, there are really only about five photos used.

Jody's voice is a strong and melodic instrument.

Jody Miller is such a versatile artist that she defies categorization. A quick search of youtube reveals the various genres she has masterfully conquered. The lady can expertly wail, croon, trill and everything else in between. This particular collection highlights her years on Columbia's Epic label. For the most part, the flavor is decidely countrypolitan, which happens to be a flavor I grew up on and dearly love. Jody's voice is a strong and melodic instrument. Beyond her beautiful vibrato (and it really is unique), there is such a thoughtful way that Jody chooses to phrase her interpretations. Her vocal inflections elevate many of these good songs to something greater than they were before she gave them her treatment. I have read folks compare her to Patsy Cline and even Judith Durham, and I think I see what they mean. But there is just something so very "Jody" that no one else quite does that she can do. Maybe it's that Oklahoma sincerity of hers; maybe it's just a God-given empathy for the "characters" she plays in each song. The good thing is that we get to listen to and enjoy these gifts.

From beginning to end, I find performances of impact thoughout the entire collection. "If You Think I Love You Now", a tender ballad, is deepened through Jody's very subtle slow burn. Really listen to how she uses restraint on the title line in each chorus, until she hits it out of the park on the final title line. This is a nice song, but it wouldn't be nearly as effective in lesser hands. This is greatness, folks.

I have my favorites, but there is not a dud in the bunch. Sure, some of the tunes are just for fun and are handled with joy and verve, but some of them are true art pieces. Jody's take on "Don't Take It Away" is almost revelatory. The pain and regret are virtually palpable.

I just got my autographed copy of "Jody Miller - Complete Epic Hits" directly from Real Gone Records and have several brief observations.
First, it is SO wonderful to hear high-quality, CD renditions of Jody's steller Epic Hits such as "Good News," "He's So Fine," "Baby I'm Yours," and, from the latter part of her Epic years, "Ashes of Love" and "When the New Wears Off of Our Love." Most of these I have only on old 45s.
Jody's singing style and phrasing are so unique and her voice so wonderful, I cannot believe it. I love how she often chose one word from a song phrase and really put a burst of added punch into it... "He's so Fine:" "HEY, he's so fine...;" "Look at Mine:" "I've got everything you need ALLLLL the time;" and in "Good News," a little naughtiness (for the early 70's) with: "Lord knows I had a time with YOU last night!" Purrrrrr...
The songs from the 1970-1974 period have that warm "Nashville Sound" from Billy Sherrill, several featuring backing from the Jordanaires, all in a style very similar to her then-Epic/Columbia labelmates Tammy Wynette and Lynn Anderson. Those thereafter are of less quality it seems... and the material is not as compelling... perhaps that is why we can see from the liner notes that Jody's charting levels, with just an exception or two, steadily declined throughout the decade covered here.
Sadly, my copy of this CD reproduces much of the music with too much of a brash, high-end sound (scratchiness on words with "S" in them, etc. I don't know if this is endemic of all the CDs produced or not. I noticed that a prior reviewer of this CD said that three of the songs were "accidently" released in MONO! How the heck did that happen?

I must start by saying I was a radio DJ in the 60's & 70's when Jody's career was new & the jocks & listeners alike took an immediate liking to "the girl singer hailing from Blanchard OK." Jody Miller is celebrating 50 years in the music business this year, & it's time we revisit some of the amazing work this lady (with 30 charted hits) churned out. She had been a Pop success on the Capitol label, her biggest hit, the chart-topping "Queen of the House", won her a Grammy in 1966. She scored several national hits starting as far back as '62, but the changing music scene (Beatles) & the way Capitol was running promotions, eventually caused her career to taper off on that label by 1970. Enter the CBS/Epic label, to which she signed on at the behest of Epic's hotshot Nashville producer Billy Sherrill. He knew a good deal when he saw it, & Jody Miller was just "what the doctor ordered" for his studio's new "Countrypolitan" sound. Jody joined the ranks of Tammy Wynette, George Jones, Lynn Anderson, et al. in the then "new" sound of Country, Jody's Epic career took off like a rocket, with 12 releases all charting in the top 20 or better, many of them crossover hits. All of those groundbreaking "new" Country sound hits are included on this CD, plus others which charted nearly as well.If you are an old fan as I am, you will need no persuading, but if you are unfamiliar with Jody's artistry, you are in for a treat. CBS Nashville Studios was the leader of the Country music industry of the early 70's, & employed top session musicians in the industry, who are in full evidence in these recordings. Along with Jody's amazing voice, they produce an almost euphoric effect on unsuspecting ears. I recommend you obtain this CD, put it on & settle down in your easy chair.Read more ›
