This is my third review of a Lacy J. Dalton album for Amazon.Com. at the risk of repetition, I will reiterate what Ive said before. Lacy j. is the most underatted, the most shamefully overlooked, and the least appreciated singer I know of.Lacy's voice just aches with tenderness, honesty and soul. Just listen to her beautiful reinterpretation of that old chestnut, The Tennesee Waltz. Lacy J. once claimed , in all seriousness, that she covered that song on orders from God. Listening to her, I believe it. Lacy J. turns it into a great blues song, a meditation on the pain and loss endemic to our human, mortal, condition, and our desperate longing for salvation:in short, a masterpiece by a near-genius. One only prays that somebody, somewhere will see fit to give this great lady the compilation album-or the record deal- she so richly deserves. All of her fans are crying out for it. I know I am. P.S..A message to the earler reviewer who was looking for "where the trade winds blow me". That is , in a fact, not a song title, but the opening lines to one of the songs on this album, the unforgettable, Taking It Easy.

Lacy J. Dalton has been writing and singing terrific country music for many years. This album reminds me of the Texas hill country and of small clubs in Austin, Santa Fe, or Tucson. Excellent ballads. 16th Avenue is one of her best songs ever with a good melody and really great lyrics. Crazy Blue Eyes and Whisper are two other excellent cuts and she does a terrific job on the old standard, Tennessee Waltz. All in all this is a great album for an evening in front of the fire.

I have loved Dalton's music since I saw her at "Fan fair" in Tenn in 1982.
These 10 songs are some of her biggest and best hits.
Such as -- "Takin' it easy" -- "Dream baby" and "Whisper"

But this entire c.d. is great!
Covered here is the first half of her hits.
In the years from 1979 to 1983 she landed a string of 12 hit songs
on the country chart, 10 are here.

The two songs during those years, that are not included here are,
"Hillbilly girl with the blues" 1980, and
"It's a dirty job" (with Bobby Bare) 1983.

Of these 10 songs, 6 are top 10 hits, and 4 made the top 20.
From Sony records, all are original recordings with excellent sound.

Footnote: Over Dalton's complete career from 1979 to 1990
she had a total of 24 songs chart.
The second half of her hits include 6 songs that made the top 20.

In the mid-eighties me and my friends were penniless nobodies in a forgotten corner of the country. But when we scraped together enough for a 6-pack and a dime we didn't need Casey Kasem or someone telling us to listen to "Joy Division" or "Culture Club" or some stupid California hair rock band. We listened to music that really lifted our spirits like Lacy J. Dalton's "16th Avenue". Where am I now? Mostly dimeless but no longer penniless, its still great to crack a 6-pack and listen to Lacy's greatest hits. God bless you Lacy.

I saw Lacy on Bill Anderson's Country Reunion and reminded me that I hadn't thought about her for years. I had always loved her singing 16th Avenue. She talked about how she came to record it and then sang it. I have always loved her distinctive voice but have never had one of her CDs. I saw that the song 16th Avenue was on this album and bought it because of that. But all the songs on this CD are great. I loved the album so much, I ordered another one of her albums that I haven't received yet. I highly recommend this album.

I love anything from Lacy J I know the song is about 16th avenue in Nashville. She has a very throaty voice meaning it carries very well

This is a nice greatest hits set of some of Dalton's best hits.
Here are 10 of her first 12 songs that charted between 1979 to 1983.
Two songs were skipped over --
"Hillbilly girl with the blues" 1980
"It's a dirty job" (with Bobby Bare) 1983.

Another noteable song of the same time period is "Wild turkey".
Although it is a B-side, it is one of Dalton's best.
This c.d. covers just under the first half of Dalton's hits.
Lacy J. went on to have 12 additional songs chart between 1983 and 1990,
six of which were top ten hits.

This collection is all origianl recordings.

First off, I love it that we can listen to samples of a music CD before we buy. I have always Loved! Lacy J. Dalton's sound. Her voice is very soothing to me. Bought it for '16th Avenue' but ALL the songs are great. Loved especially her version of Tennessee Waltz....in fact, like it better than original!! You can't go wrong with this CD.
