Loretta Lynn's new album, Van Lear Rose debuted recently & has received awesome reviews. You may not like country music & I only have a few albums myself but Mrs. Lynn is the real-deal and not that slick and plastic country/pop crap being manufactured by the "Nashville music machine" you hear so much of these days. Last month's issue of Sound & Vision magazine had a very long & detailed review of Van Lear Rose. Make sure you take a look at who the producer was--holy sh*t! So just going on the samples, her reputation & the reviews I think this CD will be in my rack soon. I have been checking out folk music the last year or so, so this kind of fits in that category. As another person on another message board said about this album, "it is raw". And that's a good thing when it comes to some types of music.
