The Wilburn Brothers Show with Loretta Lynn & Harold Morrison

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Although the Wilburn Brothers have about half the tracks on this 1966 album, it's more of a variety show hosted by the Wilburn Brothers than it is a pure Wilburn Brothers project. The idea behind this was to re-create an episode of their television show for an album, including not just songs by the brothers, but also a couple by Loretta Lynn; a couple by Ernest Tubb; a number on which Tubb and the brothers perform together, and, least essentially, a comic song and monologue by Harold Morrison.

Lynn's songs "The Home You're Tearing' Down" and "Look Who's Lonely" are the standouts, but the Wilburn Brothers do nice, close harmonies on their somewhat folkier material.
