Legend is a hefty title to carry, especially if you're still kicking. The standards are high, the expectations immense. Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, and Tammy Wynette are, nevertheless, legends of country music with decades of albums and awards to prove it. And they are very much still kicking on Honky Tonk Angels — just in case anyone needs a little reminder. You can even hear how much fun they had singing together, setting aside any historic competition and letting their love of country music shine through, each gracefully moving between lead and harmony vocals. As for the song selection, it covers a wide swath of country history from tunes made famous by early pioneers like Ferlin Husky, the Davis Sisters, and Hank Locklin to their own more contemporary compositions. If that weren't enough credibility, Kitty Wells lends her amazing voice to the opening anthem "It Wasn't God Who Made Honky Tonk Angels." Pure goodness. In another twist, Patsy Cline sings on "Lovesick Blues" with Parton, Lynn, and Wynette backing her. The closing track sums up the humorous reverence that permeates much of country music. "I Dreamed of a Hillbilly Heaven" was a hit for Tex Ritter in 1961 and is a surprising choice that seems a bit out of place, but somehow works well enough. For fans of traditional country or great singers, this is a fun listen because it nicely captures three of the best voices around.
Great traditional country music - period
This outstanding traditional country music album by three legends blending their voices and talents makes this album a must have. I love "It Wasn't God Who Made...." a lot.
It's Great : )
I really like this cd! It has three of my favorite singers: Dolly, Tammy, and Loretta! Patsy Cline and Kitty Wells gest star on it too.Their cover of Linda Ronstadts' "Silver Threads and Golde Needles" is amazing. Some of my favorite songs on it include "Sittin on the Front Porch Swing" and "Let Her Fly". The song "I Dreamed of a Hillbilly Heaven" is another one of my favorites but by now is a little out of date. Dolly seems to sing the most songs on the album and also produces it with Steve Buckingham. A must have for any classic country music fan!
It just does not get much better then these three amazing ladies...
