Her Story: Scenes from a Lifetime

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David McGee
Divas on the order of Wynonna make pretenders of all the wannabes in the field. Paired with its DVD companion, Her Story is a scintillating double-disc overview of her life and career. Disc 1, Harmony & History, covers her work with the Judds as well as the beginnings of her solo career. It ranges from 1985's saucy "Girls Night Out" to a magnificent, soaring pop rendition of the Judds' signature (and farewell) song, 1990's "Love Can Build a Bridge" and includes a sampling of solo gems, such as the slinky love story "She Is His Only Need" and the irresistible country rocker "Tell Me Why." Disc 2, Motherhood & Music, is about the inner Wy -- the one who can funk it...

Divas on the order of Wynonna make pretenders of all the wannabes in the field. Paired with its DVD companion, Her Story is a scintillating double-disc overview of her life and career. Disc 1, Harmony & History, covers her work with the Judds as well as the beginnings of her solo career. It ranges from 1985's saucy "Girls Night Out" to a magnificent, soaring pop rendition of the Judds' signature (and farewell) song, 1990's "Love Can Build a Bridge" and includes a sampling of solo gems, such as the slinky love story "She Is His Only Need" and the irresistible country rocker "Tell Me Why." Disc 2, Motherhood & Music, is about the inner Wy -- the one who can funk it up on an Earth, Wind & Fire cover ("Shining Star"), affect a wispy timbre for a pop-funk treatment of Joni Mitchell's "Help Me," and growl her way through a guitar-heavy take on Melissa Etheridge's "I'm the Only One." All of Wynonna's strengths come dramatically to the fore on a deep gospel reading of Curtis Mayfield's "People Get Ready," during which the star allows her formidable backup singers to take the exuberant crowd to church with emotive solo turns of their own. She ties the songs together with autobiographical anecdotes -- hence the album's subtitle, Scenes from a Lifetime -- but in the end it's about the music, which betrays an impressive stylistic palette. Perhaps as a glimpse of things yet to come, a bonus studio track, "Attitude," co-written by Wy with Big & Rich's John Rich, is a rock 'n' soul juggernaut, featuring a shouting chorus, screaming guitars, and thundering percussion around her snarling, gutsy vocal -- a real tour de force of blue-eyed soul from the distaff side. Powerful stuff here, from a country giant at the top of her game.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Contrary to what the title of Her Story: Scenes from a Lifetime suggests, this double-disc set is not an anthology, yet it is an overview of Wynonna Judd's career, finding her live in concert sifting through her back pages. To be exact, it captures her live at the Grand Ole Opry House on February 1, 2005, singing hits that she had as a member of the Judds and hits she had as a solo artist, covering a few songs along the way. All the songs follow roughly in chronological order, so the 27-track album functions as something like a musical autobiography. It's a clever idea and one that's well executed: the mood of her performances are appropriately warm, laid-back, and reflective. She's not rewriting her history; she's indulging in nostalgia, which means this isn't quite an essential record, but anybody who has followed her throughout her career will find it hard not to join Wynonna on her stroll down memory lane, since this has such relaxed, friendly vibe.

    Excellent

    It amazes me that after over 20 years Wy can still touch my heart with songs like "Peace in this house". It's a song that every Mother in the world needs to hear. "Attitude" is windows down pedal to the metal cruisin song. I WANT MORE!
