  1. Frank,
    This is the first time I've heard her doing a country song. Excellent!! (Muzzling the chorus behind her would have made it even better, though.)

  2. “What a voice. What soul!” —Yessir!

    She recorded an album of country tunes, the LP pictured above, around the time Ray Charles put out Modern Sounds in Country & Western Music. I kind of like the chorus as it, along with the piano bits, really gives it the Ray Charles C&W feel.

    At any rate, a much neglected singer who should be more widely known than for just “Hurt.”
