Distinctions The Qobuz Ideal Discography
The title track was one of those defining songs for Loretta Lynn, not only one of the best but one of the most likeable country & western artists. She bats one home run after another in these vocals, singing her brains out and coming across as totally convincing in each role she takes on. The cynical "I Got Caught" is one of her finer originals, while she also has the knack of picking covers that suit her perfectly, such as "The Shoe Goes on the Other Foot Tonight" by the underrated Buddy Mize. No country fan will mind that she covers a number by her old sidekick, Ernest Tubb. Then there's the pickers who came along for the ride, totally tearing it up. The series of lead guitar/pedal steel interchanges that run through this album are certainly more attractive than the Nashville freeway system, and definitely contributed more to 20th century civilization. Lynn would later record the song "You're Lookin' at Country," and that pretty much sums up the view of this mighty lady. This here is stone-cold country, and it doesn't get much better. © Eugene Chadbourne /TiVo

Country - Released September 13, 1994 | Geffen

Loretta Lynn's three-disc box set Honky Tonk Girl: Collection has the requisite rarities, but the real strength of the set is how it offers all of her essential tracks -- from 1960s "I'm a Honky Tonk Girl" to 1988's "Who Was That Stranger" -- in one place. Not only are her classic hits like "Fist City" and "Coal Miner's Daughter" included, but so are most of her hit duets with Conway Twitty, such as "After the Fire Is Gone" and "As Soon as I Hang Up the Phone." A few hits are missing -- notably "Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man" -- but Honky Tonk Girl remains the one comprehensive and essential Loretta Lynn collection. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Country - Released January 1, 2002 | MCA Nashville

This straightforward hits collection contains all 16 of Loretta Lynn's number one country hits according to Billboard, five of them duets with Conway Twitty, plus three number two hits and three number three hits, all released originally between 1964 and 1979. The singer also scored one other number two hit, the Twitty duet "I Still Believe in Waltzes" from 1981, and several other number three hits, as well as numerous other major songs that are not included. Some of them could have fit on a CD that runs less than 57 and a half minutes, but from a record company point of view the issue is less the time than the number of tracks, since song publishers must be paid royalties on each title. That makes 22 tracks (none of which run longer than three minutes and 15 seconds) a packed disc from a profit perspective, even if consumers wonder why the album isn't more complete. As it is, there are enough of Lynn's big records to justify the title and make this a good purchase for anyone seeking a single-disc hits collection. © William Ruhlmann /TiVo

Country - Released September 28, 2018 | Legacy Recordings

At 86 years old, the Coal Miner’s Daughter still has a place on the Nashville stage. A leading figure of Opry in the 1960s, this great lady who started from nothing to reach the summit of her art is respected, even worshipped by all country music enthusiasts. With Wouldn't It Be Great, she has released a deeply personal project that looks back at her career. Faithful to the traditional country music of the honkytonks and the Carter Family, it is not surprising to hear her sing the anthem of her autobiography Coal Miner’s Daughter once again. Forty-eight years have passed and yet her charm has remained intact. Steel guitar, fiddle and high-pitched voice − the more time passes, the stronger the emotional impact. Although Loretta goes back to some great classics (God Makes No Mistakes), she doesn’t fall for corny nostalgia. Once again co-produced by John Carter Cash and his daughter Patsy Lynn Russell, the album also features original songs like No Time To Go and Ruby’s Stool. Although Loretta Lynn sticks out with her long blue dress in today’s world, a single song is enough for the listener understand the majesty of the Queen of Country Music. © Clara Bismuth/Qobuz

Country - Released January 1, 2005 | MCA Nashville

MCA's 2005 release The Definitive Collection expands upon its 2002 collection, All Time Greatest Hits. The 2002 disc contained 22 tracks, including all 16 of Loretta Lynn's Billboard number one country hits (including her duets with Conway Twitty). This collection contains every one of those 22 tracks, adding three iconic songs that weren't on All Time Greatest Hits: "Blue Kentucky Girl," "You're Lookin' at Country," and "The Pill." For those who own the 2002 disc, that may not be enough to warrant the purchase of this new collection, but it does make The Definitive Collection a stronger overview and the best single-disc Loretta retrospective yet assembled. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Country - Released January 1, 2004 | MCA Nashville

Between 1965 and 1972, Loretta Lynn released three LPs of inspirational music, Hymns (1965), Who Says God Is Dead! (1968), and God Bless America Again (1972), and each of them made the country charts. This compilation selects highlights from those albums. Working with her usual producer, Owen Bradley, Lynn takes a typically straightforward approach to the material, which consists mostly of standards early on, with some more contemporary songs added in toward the end. She is usually accompanied by backup vocal groups, although only "The Old Rugged Cross" and "Harp With Golden Wings" credit the Jordanaires. On "In the Sweet Bye and Bye," she seems to be singing a harmony duet with herself through the miracle of overdubbing. The most interesting tracks come in the final six from God Bless America Again, among them the up-tempo "I Feel Like Traveling On"; "Gethsemane," which borrows its melody from "St. James Infirmary"; and "If God Is Dead (Who's This Living in My Soul)," a song to answer that famous Time magazine cover of the '60s, "Is God Dead?" Lynn, of course, would reply with a resounding "no!" © William Ruhlmann /TiVo

Country - Released January 1, 1971 | Geffen*

Unlike the song, autobiography and film of the same name, the album Coal Miner's Daughter isn't a reflection on Loretta Lynn's upbringing. Instead, it's merely a standard, early '70s collection of originals and covers, all performed with gusto by Lynn. Coal Miner's Daughter boasts a stronger, more consistent selection of material than most of her other albums from the period, and contains a number of her classics, like the title song and "I'm a Honky Tonk Girl," plus a handful of lesser-known gems. © Thom Owens /TiVo

Ambient/New Age - Released January 1, 2005 | MCA Nashville

MCA Nashville's discount-priced 20th Century Masters - The Christmas Collection: The Best of Loretta Lynn is nothing more or less than a straight reissue of Lynn's 1966 holiday album Country Christmas. There are those who would like to set every Christmas album ever recorded ablaze over a Yuletide fireplace, but let's hope these cheerless arsonists overlook this already well-roasted chestnut of a record. If anyone has the personality to make a good Christmas record, it would be Loretta Lynn. But there are surprise goodies in her gift bag, as she even manages to come up with three great original numbers based on the holiday, the best of the batch being "To Heck with Ole Santa Claus." Her playful side helps her extract nice feelings from too-familiar numbers such as "Silver Bells" and "Frosty the Snowman." And Lynn is such a great vocalist that she's able to give both Elvis Presley and Bing Crosby a run for the mistletoe as she takes Christmas from shades of blue to white and back again. Some good country session pickers hold things together whenever she stops for a holiday smooch. © Eugene Chadbourne /TiVo

She had a big hand in raising Nashville's perception of women as capable and competent (although the city still has a way to go). "Don't Come Home A-Drinkin'" and "You Ain't Woman Enough" are particularly representative: sassy, honest, and aggressive. © Tom Roland /TiVo

Country - Released January 1, 1966 | MCA Nashville

Although it boggles the mind a bit to think this was recorded in the same year (1967) that the Beatles unleashed Sgt. Pepper's, this is actually one of Lynn's strongest and most characteristic early efforts. The title song, one of Lynn's many watch-where-you-park-it-sister anthems, has of course become a classic. There are also some great cry-in-your-beer weepies ("The Darkest Day"), tales of domestic drudgery ("Tippy Toeing"), and a surprisingly convincing cover of Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'." © Rovi Staff /TiVo

This 12-track addition to the 20th Century Masters series contains a few of Loretta Lynn's iconic hits -- "Fist City," "As Soon As I Hang Up the Phone," and "The Pill." The rest, however, concentrates on hits that were big at the time, but remain on the second tier of her catalog. That's not to say they're bad, because they're not -- they're really good, actually -- but they're not necessarily the tunes that casual listeners are looking for. However, if you see several of your favorite songs here, or if you followed the charts at the time these dominated the rungs, this certainly will be a good listen. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

Country - Released January 1, 1982 | MCA Nashville

An after-the-fact concept album cobbled together from various Lynn albums of the '70s. Despite the title song and "Deeper and Deeper," both of which lament relationships where the partners are basically going through the motions, most of the songs here are more upbeat and positive. Most of them are mid-tempo ballads (big exception: the sort of honky-tonk "There's All Kinds of Smoke in the Barroom), and some ("When We Get Back Together," "I Don't Want to Heart It Anymore") have the sort of Captain and Tennile-ish mid-'70s instrumental pop touches that spelled crossover to Nashville at the time. © TiVo
