Lynn Anderson: Greatest Hits CD

Signing with Chart Records in 1966, Anderson was an immediate success thanks in large part to mom Liz's songwriting. These songs - like "If I Kiss You" and "Promises, Promises" - featured clever wordplay that played off her youthful exuberance. When Anderson left Chart, they continued to mine her old albums for singles, astutely selecting remakes of hits like "I've Been Everywhere" and "Rocky Top" which displayed Anderson at her most irresistibly chipper.
At Columbia, Joe South's compositions "Rose Garden," "Fool Me," and "How Can I Unlove You" provided Anderson with an early boost. Even more important was the writing and production involvement of husband Glenn Sutton, whom Anderson married just prior to joining Columbia. At Columbia, Sutton matched the brisk pace of Anderson's best Chart recordings with his narcissistic songwriting efforts "You're My Man" and "What A Man, My Man Is." He also encouraged Anderson to stretch stylistically, with the breezily seductive "Sing About Love" and a remake of Johnny Ray's "Cry" that showed she could effectively go from delicate to bombastic within the course of a song.
While a few key recordings are missing, such as her first hit "Ride, Ride, Ride," and the gorgeous Linda Hargrove ballad "I've Never Loved Anyone More," this collection easily rates as the best available Anderson retrospective. The track lineup:
1. Rose Garden
2. You're My Man
3. How Can I Unlove You
4. Keep Me In Mind
