All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
In the pumped-up disco era of the late '70s, Tanya Tucker, a full six years after her debut -- and all of 19 years old -- was still tearing up the charts and exploiting her now fully developed womanhood. Hooking up for the first time with Jerry Goldstein, who was about as far from Billy Sherrill as you could get, Tucker issued a mostly up-tempo, steamy record that rocked as hard or harder than it twanged. Opening with Phil Everly's rocker "Lover Goodbye," complete with synth drums, and following it with the torch and twang of "I'm the Singer, You're the Song," co-written with Goldstein, it was pure eros wrapped in strings and electric guitars. But the real tale of the tape ...

In the pumped-up disco era of the late '70s, Tanya Tucker, a full six years after her debut -- and all of 19 years old -- was still tearing up the charts and exploiting her now fully developed womanhood. Hooking up for the first time with Jerry Goldstein, who was about as far from Billy Sherrill as you could get, Tucker issued a mostly up-tempo, steamy record that rocked as hard or harder than it twanged. Opening with Phil Everly's rocker "Lover Goodbye," complete with synth drums, and following it with the torch and twang of "I'm the Singer, You're the Song," co-written with Goldstein, it was pure eros wrapped in strings and electric guitars. But the real tale of the tape is told beginning with track three: a cover of Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away," with Mickey Raphael on blues harmonica, which funked almost as much as it rocked. Cross this with a riveting read of John Prine's "Angel From Montgomery" that rivals Bonnie Raitt's and a scorching "Heartbreak Hotel," and you have a side that can be played over and again ad infinitum. But side two is charged on with a scorching, sensual "Brown Eyed Handsome Man." While it never gains the same momentum as that track, the ballads and honky tonk numbers are steeped in a pop sound that wears surprisingly well over two decades later. Oh yes, on the beautiful mid-tempo ballad "The River and the Wind," Seals & Crofts help on the backing vocals; it's probably the best thing they ever did given how awful their own records are.

    Tanya Rocks

    This was the first Tanya Tucker album that I bought in the late 1970's. This cd is missing the sexy photo in the center, but it still a great album. Texas(when I die) was my favorite and it is a the really country song on the record, but Tanya shows that she can rock too. I think that this album is even relevant since the line between country and rock has been blurred.
