  1. If you haven't heard her album Van Lear Rose, circa 2004, you need to check it out. It was produced by Jack White. Two standouts from the album are "High on a Mountain Top,"

  2. I have always been a fan of the lovely lady, with the powerful and yet beautiful voice. A true country singer that you can tell came from the places that some of her songs spoke about. And yet I never heard of her going on a late night talk show, and airing all of her dirty laundry, seeking sympathy.
    While some of the ladies singing today have nice voices, and most of them look hot, none of them can touch a woman like Loretta Lynn as far as her character and her class. When all of my heroes of music are gone, everyone from Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, and the remaining members of the old groups call it quits, like America, Metallica, Pat Benatar and her group, when Peter Frampton finally loses the ability to move his hands, and all the rest of the musicians that helped form my musical taste are gone, I can be grateful that someone developed the technology to record their music not only accurately, but better than the old vinyl records we had when I was a kid.
    Some people claim that vinyl records give a better, more true sound than digital does. If you ever get the chance to listen to both, side by side, I bet you would choose the modern digital way of recording. The sound might not have the same "warmth" but you will hear everything, from a misfit of a drumstick, to a bad note on a guitar solo, if if like me, you are a sax player, you might hear pads closing on a soft solo.
    The only thing better, and the way we did it when I was playing in a working band, and selling cassettes, was to record first, our masters in real to reel. Then fun from that. It gave us good results, and we never had to rent studio time.
